EC unlikely to get funds till April 10: sources

Islamabad: Government sources say that the Election Commission is not likely to receive funds for the elections by April 10.

The spokesperson of the Election Commission has also confirmed that the institution has not received the funds so far.

On the other hand, government sources say that there is no possibility of the Election Commission receiving funds for the elections by April 10 because no meeting of the Economic Coordination Committee is scheduled until April 10.

The Election Commission has demanded 21 billion rupees from the government for the elections in Punjab and the Supreme Court has ordered the Finance Ministry to give the funds to the Election Commission by April 10.

On November 30, the Economic Coordination Committee approved the Election Commission’s demand of 15 billion out of 47 billion which was not for the general election.
