Poll advanced to 30 July

Pakistan Supreme Court on Wednesday advanced the presidential election by seven days, from 6 August to 30 July, following PML-N party’s plea that some parliamentarians will be in Mecca during that time.
SC gave its ruling on the petition filed by PML-N chairman Raja Zafarul Haq, who sought a change in the poll date as many members of parliament would be in Mecca for religious rituals. The government endorsed Haq’s plea before SC to direct the election commission reschedule the upcoming election for 30 July.
