ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Friday announced the postponement of by-elections for National Assembly and provincial assembly seats till February 25, Express News has reported.

The commission says that the voter list will be corrected before the by-elections take place.

The Supreme Court had earlier issued directions for the ECP to complete the process of electoral rolls till February 23.

The ECP, however, had said it was difficult for it to complete the process in such a short time.

The by-elections will be held on seats vacated by former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi (NA- 148 Multan), Sardar Assef Ahmed Ali (NA-140 Kasur) of the PPP, former leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Makhdoom Javed Hashmi (NA-149), Jahangir Tareen (NA-195 Rahimyar Khan) and Nawabzada Muhammad Khan Hoti (NA-9 Mardan).
