Govt made foolproof arrangements for LG polls

LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan on Friday said the government had made foolproof security arrangements to hold peaceful third phase of local government elections scheduled for today (Saturday).


“Laws will remain the same as it was during the first and second phase of the LB polls and nobody will be allowed to influence the election process,” he added.


The minister said holding of LG elections in a peaceful manner was a national responsibility and police and administrative officers would have to utilise all their energies in maintaining law and order during election process. “All provincial departments will have to discharge their duties considering as national obligation for supremacy of law and justice.” He said the government would not compromise on ensuring implementation of law and there would be a complete ban on displaying and carrying of arms and indiscriminate action would be taken against violators.
