ECP asked not to cut provincial assembly seat of Chitral

Salim Khan[/caption] A resolution moved by the PPP legislator from Chitral Salim Khan was actually about not decreasing a provincial assembly seat from his own district. The resolution stated that in the wake of the recently conducted national census, the delimitation of constituencies was being started and through media it had come to limelight that one provincial seat from Chitral was being given to another district. Decreasing one provincial assembly seat of Chitral would further increase the deprivation and backwardness of the area-wise largest district of the province. He said the people of Chitral were shocked over the development and if it really happened they were likely to go for the boycott of the general elections 2018. After the presentation of the resolution, Minister for Higher Education Mushtaq Ahmad Ghani also proposed the inclusion of Charsadda, Swabi, Abbottabad and Haripur districts in it to which the mover also agreed. Later, Speaker Asad Qaiser put the resolution to vote and the house approved it unanimously. –Khyber News]]>
