PTI challenges Punjab Local Govt Act, seeks party-based LB polls


LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday challenged Punjab Local Government Act 2013 in Lahore High Court, seeking local bodies elections on a party basis.


The petitioner in his petition stated that the newly passed Punjab Local Government Act 2013 was unconstitutional because holding local bodies polls on non-party basis is violation of human rights.

He also prayed that several clauses of the newly approved act were unconstitutional, and aimed at rendering the local bodies system ineffective.
