IHC moved against increase of UCs in capital

A petition has been moved to Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday seeking contempt of court proceeding on increasing the number of union councils in the federal capital. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s leader Ali Nawaz Awan filed the petition. He adopted the stance that the IHC had already given order in a matter of union council and refrained from increasing the number of UCs. He prayed the court to initiate a contempt of court proceeding on violation of IHC’s verdict. Meanwhile, a petition had been moved to the IHC on Wednesday, seeking to stop local body elections in Islamabad under old voter lists. A candidate for UC chairman Shahzad Aurangzeb filed the petition and adopted the stance that the number of union councils in the federal capital had been increased from 101 to 125. He prayed the court to stop the local body elections under the old voter lists as the notification of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) was limited to the 101 union councils.

The federal government, he said, had also suggested some amendments in the local government act.
