Pakistan Rights Commission to Polling Body: “Announce General Election Schedule Promptly”

<p>A prominent human rights organization in Pakistan has demanded that the “uncertainty” surrounding the impending general elections be resolved immediately away and asked the main electoral body to quickly announce the poll timetable. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) said in an official statement that at a meeting held on Sunday, its members expressed “significant apprehension” over this matter.</p>
<p>“The governing Council of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), on concluding a meeting earlier today, has expressed immense concern over the uncertainty surrounding the general #elections,” the rights group stated.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-160289″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-five-dos-and-donts-for-travelers-for-a-convenient-experience-according-to-a-flight.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com five dos and donts for travelers for a convenient experience according to a flight” width=”1264″ height=”708″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-five-dos-and-donts-for-travelers-for-a-convenient-experience-according-to-a-flight.jpg 300w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-five-dos-and-donts-for-travelers-for-a-convenient-experience-according-to-a-flight-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1264px) 100vw, 1264px” title=”Pakistan Rights Commission to Polling Body: "Announce General Election Schedule Promptly" 3″></p>
<p>“HRCP demands that the @ECP_Pakistan swiftly declare an election date so that voting takes place as close to the required 90 days as is practical. The statement said, “The delimitation of seats must also be done promptly and effectively and must never be used as a pretext to further postpone the elections.</p>
<p>HRCP is concerned about the possibility of government institutions meddling in the voting process, which is even more concerning. The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has been strongly asked to take further precautions to prevent this from happening by the HRCP.</p>
<p>The HRCP’s head, Hina Jilani, expressed concern about the increasingly divisive climate, in which religious and sectarian differences are allegedly being fostered to provide a political haven for far-right groups like the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP).</p>
<p>“Organic political and civic spaces are being destroyed by the divisive and violent methods these parties adopt to fortify their political identities, notably at the cost of religious minorities and sects. Political parties are now less confident about holding elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa due to the ongoing terrorist bloodshed in the region, which is a trend we have seen before and must not repeat, according to her.</p>
<p>The current caretaker government will be evaluated on its ability to address the issues that regular citizens are mobilizing around, she continued, in addition to its ability to ensure that free, fair, and credible elections are held.</p>
<p>This criticism is due to the fact that not everyone agrees with the poll body’s decision to delay elections beyond November 9 in order to wait for the findings of the 2023 digital census.</p>
<p>The ECP had earlier anticipated that the delimitation process would be finished by December 14, which was more than a month over the legally mandated election deadline. But last week, ECP accelerated the schedule for delineating the constituencies for the national and provincial assembly with the goal of finishing the procedure by November 30.</p>
