ISLAMABAD: With less than a month remaining in the general elections, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) sent the details of electoral symbols of political parties to returning officers (ROs), The News reported Wednesday. 

In this regard, the electoral body has sent a letter as a top priority to the ROs of national and provincial assemblies along with the list of election symbols of 145 political parties.

The ECP, in its letter, emphasizes that only candidates nominated by political parties should be allotted relevant election symbols.

The returning officials have been informed that election symbols of political parties should not be given to any autonomous up-and-comer.

For this, the ECP has likewise sent a rundown of discrete political race images for free up-and-comers, coordinating the returning officials not to distribute images to competitors other than those referenced in the rundown.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is among more than twelve ideological groups which has not been named in that frame of mind of political race images, as its famous “bat” image has been deprived of because of the non-lead of intra-party decisions — a lawful necessity to fit the bill for a political race image.

The parties that have been allotted symbols include Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians (PPPP) which has been allocated “arrow”, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) “sword”, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz “tiger”, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Nazriyati (PTI-N) “batsman”.
