Members of the electoral reforms commission noted that they are trying to finish parts of the works before the end of Parliament’s summer holidays.

The executive office also said that the Parliamentary election will be held after completion of reforms in electoral reforms.

“We will not announce the time of holding parliamentary election until the electoral system not reformed,” Jawid Faisal, deputy spokesman of the executive office said.

The electoral reforms commission will also send its members to seven zones of the country next week for campaigns with people.
