QUETTA: The local bodies power transfer process will begin after Eid ul Azha, said Dr. Malik, Chief Minister (CM) of Balochistan on Saturday.
Addressing a program of Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE) in Karachi, CM Balochistan made this announcement.
The Local Bodies election took place in Balochistan on December 7, 2013 as a result of Supreme Court orders. Since then the transfer of power to local bodies has been delayed due to one reason or the other.
The alliance of opposition and PML-N councilors called All Parties Democratic Alliance (APDA) has held government of Balochistan responsible for failure in transferring power to councilors.
