The Election Commission Unable to Finalize Results the results of yesterday’s elections. Last night, the ECP issued a stern warning to provincial election commissioners and returning officers, instructing them to announce the General Elections 2024 results within half an hour or face repercussions.
However, the official results for most of the National Assembly and provincial assembly seats are still pending. Unofficial results suggest that independent candidates supported by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) are leading in the majority of the national assembly seats.
Responding to concerns about the delay, the Interior Ministry attributed it to a lack of communication, which resulted from security measures taken to ensure robust security. The Ministry assessed the current situation as satisfactory despite the delay.
In contrast to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority’s (PTA) assurance of no internet disruptions, users across the country experienced lengthy outages. The Interior Ministry stated that recent militant attacks have claimed lives, emphasizing the necessity of security measures to maintain law and order and address potential threats.
