LAHORE: Following the Sindh Assembly’s decision to hand over the powers of delimitation to the Election Commission of Pakistan, the Punjab Assembly on Monday passed a similar bill.

The Punjab Local Government (Second Amendment) Bill 2014, passed by a majority of the house, will empower the ECP to carry out delimitation of constituencies of the local government.

Earlier, the Supreme Court had directed the Punjab government to make necessary amendments in the bill.

The opposition welcomed the amendments but moved for further deliberations on the amendments which were opposed by the House.

The ordinance was tabled in the Punjab Assembly on October 20 which was subsequently sent to the Standing Committee on Local Government and Development. The committee was given a week’s time to submit its report.

The ordinance was presented by provincial Law Minister Mujtaba Shujaur Rahman along with four other ordinances.
