ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) will issue today a notification with regard to the allotment of the seats reserved for women and religious minorities to political parties.  

The commission has already issued notifications of winning candidates. It will calculate each party’s share in the reserved seats on the basis of independent candidates joining political parties and will notify the names of successful candidates.

An ECP official dispelled the impression of any deliberate delay on the part of the electoral body in this regard and made it clear that it will ensure timely completion of all procedure under the law.

President Mamnoon Hussain has already summoned the first session of the National Assembly after the July 25 polls, setting in motion the process of transfer of power to the newly elected representatives.

On the first day of the NA session on Monday, the new elected members of the lower house of parliament will take oath of their office. The oath will be followed by the elections of the speaker, the deputy speaker and then the leader of the house.
