In an important development, the scheduled elections for NA-85 Sargodha on February 8 have been unexpectedly postponed, following a notification issued by the Returning Officer, Shoaib Ahmad Niswana.
The decision to postpone the elections comes in the wake of the unfortunate demise of candidate Sadiq Ali.
The electoral watchdog confirmed the participation of notable candidates, including Amir Sultan Cheema and Dr. Zulfiqar Ali Bhatti, in the electoral race for NA-85. However, the new election schedule for the constituency will be released at a later date.
This postponement adds a unique twist to the upcoming general elections, originally slated for February 8. The national event is set to encompass three constituencies in the National Assembly of the federal capital Islamabad, alongside contests in national and provincial assemblies across the country. Stay tuned for further updates on the rescheduled elections in NA-85 Sargodha.
