ECP extends polling time

 Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) extended on Friday the time for polling in the July 25 general election in order to ensure the maximum participation of voters, according to a statement by the commission.

As per the revised timings, polling will now be held from 8am to 6pm, for a total of 10 hours without any recess.

Sources said this is the first time the polling duration has been extended across the board in the country’s electoral history.

Interestingly, the ECP rejected on Wednesday Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) request to extend polling time for the upcoming election.
