ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) will hold the presidential election on August 6 as scheduled earlier, said ECP Secretary Ishtiaq Ahmed Khan on Monday.
Khan said the reasons given by the federal government for postponement were insufficient.
He said the election commission will notify the government about the decision.
Earlier, the government had requested the ECP to reschedule the presidential election as several parliamentarians will be out of the country to perform Umra and many others would be observing Itikaf.
