Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam’s (JUI-F) electoral symbol for the by-election may be a “book”, the committee of Pakistan confirmed on Monday.
The ECP issued a handout to clarify the matter after notifications regarding the party’s symbol made rounds on social media. The ECP, within the statement, said that the party’s symbol is “book” and not “(qalam) pen”.
“All the candidates of the JUI-F will contest within the by-elections following the ‘book’ electoral symbol,” the ECP’s statement added.
The by-polls for Sindh Assembly’s PS-43 (Sanghar III) and PS-88 (Malir II) and Balochistan Assembly’s PB-20 (Pishin III) are going to be persisted February 16, while voters in NA-45 (Kurram I) and NA-75 (Sialkot IV) and Punjab Assembly’s PP-51 (Gujranwala I) and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly’s PK-63 (Nowshera III) will elect their representatives on Feb 19.
