The ECP in its request states that since the printing of ballot paperwork is ‘impossible’ within a very short time, the rules and regulations prepared by the provinces carry legal flaws, therefore, the holding of local body elections is ‘not possible’.

To seek deferment of polls, the ECP also cited reasons of allotment of election symbols in Punjab for party-based polls, besides the issue of local councils in the province.
