In a combined session of parliament, Interior minister Rana Sanaullah questions whether elections have ever been postponed.

The interior minister Rana Sanaullah objects to holding separate general and provincial elections.

According to Aaj News, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah questioned on Wednesday whether elections postponed further than the 90 days allowed by the Constitution.

Elections ought to take place simultaneously across the nation: Rana Sanaullah.

The interior minister opposed holding general and province elections separately. Claiming that doing so would lead to anarchy in the nation while speaking to a joint session of parliament.

But he denies that the ruling coalition is “running away” from the polls, adding that the government wants them to conduct transparently.

Rana Sanaullah said there are various viewpoints on elections and that parliament needs direction from the executive branch and other institutions in response to the polling issue.

I say that April 30 is past the Constitution’s 90-day deadline. But have elections ever been held after those deadlines of 90 or 60 days? Sanaullah enquired.

The interior minister said the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly dissolves before the National Parliament and the other provincial legislatures following the 2008 elections.

However, the KP Assembly election occurred only 30 or 40 days beforehand.

Rana Sanaullah’s Remarks On Election Postponement and National Unity

Hours before Sanaullah’s comments, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) excused itself from meeting with President Arif Alvi to discuss elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for the time being, citing that the judiciary is already reviewing the topic.

Rana Sanaullah states that the country’s flooding caused the 1988 elections to postpone by five to six months and urged citizens to make judgments with “knowledge and discernment” as the nation was dealing with a “fitna” that craved turmoil.

The interior minister stressed that only free and fair elections would be able to end the “fitna,” adding that without them, political and economic stability would not be possible.

“In the current context, it is a constitutional need to hold elections within 90 days of dissolving the assembly. Even though April 30 is past that deadline and holding elections on that day would violate the Constitution, “The pastor commented.

He said that the Constitution also required “free and fair” elections, which fell under the purview of the electoral watchdog.

Nefarious Motives

After Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial stated that the Supreme Court would intervene if there were any nefarious motives in conducting. “Transparent elections” in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the Interior Minister commented just hours after.

The Supreme Court ordered on March 1 that the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assemblies’ elections must take place within 90 days. 

In case of any practical difficulties, however, it sanctions the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to suggest a poll date that deviates from the 90-day timetable by the bare minimum.

The ECP then sent unique letters to the president and the governor of the KP on March 10. 

The patrol suggested election dates between April 30 and May 7 in a letter to President Dr. Arif Alvi. After that, Alvi states that April 30 would be the date of the Punjab elections.

In contrast, KP Governor Haji Ghulam Ali first set May 28 as the date for the province’s elections before rescinding his choice and urging that “important obstacles” resolves first.
