The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has announced that the South Asian nation of 241 million people will hold elections early next year instead of in November.
The elections had been due to be held in November but were delayed by a couple of weeks due to fresh marking of constituencies, according to a new census.
A final list of the new constituencies will be ready and published by November 30, the ECP said, and the nation will vote late in January 2024 after a 54-day process that includes filing nomination papers, appeals and campaigning.
The elections are due after the outgoing parliament completed a five-year term in August.
A caretaker government has been installed to supervise the election.
