The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has directed Punjab government to increase electoral symbols from 60 to 100 for the upcoming local government elections.
According to ECP spokesperson, the commission asked Punjab to keep at least 100 electoral symbols for the holding of LG polls on non-party basis.
The commission also told Punjab government to make the required changes and revert back to the commission.
Earlier on Thursday, the ECP said that local government elections in Punjab and Sindh had been deferred. But the commission announced the poll schedule for Balochistan.
