ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday said the general elections would have to be held according to the current demarcation of constituencies if the national census did not conclude by September. Addressing the National Assembly's Standing Committee for Parliamentary Affairs, Zafar Iqbal, the ECP additional secretary for training, research and evaluation, said it was crucial to conclude the population census by September, 2017 if constituency boundaries were to be remapped for the upcoming general elections. "If the census does not conclude by September, the upcoming election will not be held on the basis of newly-demarcated districts," he said. The statement came after a suicide bombing attack on a census team early the same day.
