ISLAMABAD – The upcoming general elections will be held under the supervision of the Supreme Court (SC) but the army may also be called on sensitive polling stations, Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Additional Secretary Afzal Khan said on Monday. Addressing a news conference here, he said it is the topmost ECP priority to hold free and fair elections in the country and the apex court is raring to help out the commission in this regard.

However, he clarified that the elections will take place under the aegis of the ECP alone but any institution could be approached for help in this regard. The Army may be called in on sensitive polling stations but this should not mean that elections will take place in its supervision, Afzal Khan said. The Election Commission led by Justice (r) Fakhruddin G Ebrahim enjoys complete support from the higher judiciary, the ECP official asserted.
