LAHORE – The PTI will seek remedy from the courts if the Election Commission of Pakistan could not complete the process of voters list by March 23.

PTI leaders during a press conference on Monday said that the Supreme Court had directed the Commission and NADRA to complete the process by March 23 if they fail to do so, PTI would go to the courts.

Justice (Retd) Wajih-ud-Din, Ahsan Rasheed, Salooni Bukhari, Talath Naqvi along with other party leaders have announced launching protest drive across the province against the gas and electricity load shedding.

PTI leaders said that they would press the government through the protest drive for timely payments to the IPPs in order to control the electricity load shedding.
