ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission has re-described hundreds of constituencies of national and provincial assemblies. A notification was issued on Wednesday saying 128 National Assembly constituencies and 292 provincial constituencies have been re-described.

The reason given for re-description is geographical changes in the constituencies’ respective areas.

The election commission has made the changes under Section 10-A of the Delimitation Act of 1974 which authorises the election commission to make any changes in the constituencies prior to the elections.

National Assembly constituencies where re-description has been done include both constituencies of the capital Islamabad, 19 constituencies in Khyber Pakthunkhwa, 17 in Punjab, 34 constituencies in Sindh and three in Balochistan.

Changes have been made in 292 provincial constituencies that include 73 constituencies in KP, 137 in Punjab, 66 constituencies in Sindh and 16 in Balochistan.
