Event Description

CPDI and RDO are going to organize a press conference to raise demand for the restoration of local government system by holding local government elections at earliest.

In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa the tenure of three tiers of local bodies installed in 2015 expired on August 28, 2019. According to Section 219 of Elections Act 2017, fresh polls should have been held within 120 days of the expiry of the term of the existing local bodies. However, the provincial government did not conduct elections in the timeframe mentioned in the law.

This activity is being implemented with support of European Union, FNF-Pakistan and CPDI under the DLG project.

Note: Entry to the event is restricted to the invitees only.
