ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s election regulator has said that it is “not advisable” to delay the upcoming vote, after senators approved a controversial resolution calling for the general elections to be further postponed.

The country of more than 241 million people was originally due to hold elections in November, 90 days after the lower house of parliament was dissolved in August, but polls were delayed to February due to the fresh demarcation of constituencies under a new census.
