In a bid to keep the Karachi mayor elections transparent, the Sindh Government has announced that the new mayor will be elected through a show of hand.

The decision has already been conveyed to the Election Commission of Pakistan. The show of hand will be implemented under the Sindh Local Government Amendment Act.

The development comes after the electoral body had asked the provincial government to form an election body for the process.

Earlier, the Election Commission of Pakistan announced the schedule of the mayor and deputy mayor election in Sindh.

The polls will take place on June 15. The nomination paper can be submitted by June 9-10. Then the ECP’s Returning Officer will check the nomination papers on June 11 and the finalized list of candidates will be released on June 14.

On June 16, the Returning Officers will announce the results whereas the successful candidates will take oath on June 19.
