The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has announced that the schedule for local bodies (LB) polls in Sindh and Punjab will be issued on December 7. The ECP has asked the provinces to complete preparations for the LB polls otherwise they would be held responsible for any delays.

LB polls in Sindh are scheduled to be held on January 18 and January 20 in Punjab. The schedule was to be issued on November 29 and the ECP had directed the provinces to complete their preparations for the LB polls on November 28 but they failed to fulfill the legal requirements.
