The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is gearing up for the presidential election which is likely to take place on March 9.

This development comes as the constitutional term of President Dr. Arif Alvi concluded on September 8, 2023.

Despite the conclusion of his term, President Alvi continues to discharge his duties within the caretaker setup. However, according to sources within the Election Commission, preparations for the presidential election are in full swing, with the commission having finalized the schedule for the impending polls.

Sources further revealed that the electoral watchdog has not only prepared the schedule but has also received approval for it.

It is pertinent to mention that as per constitutional provisions, the President can retain office for one month following the conclusion of a general election.

In light of these developments, the Election Commission is expected to issue the official schedule for the presidential election imminently, providing clarity and direction for the electoral process.
