People from merged area will elect their leaders for first time: Durrani
ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister Iftikhar Durrani today (Saturday) said that this would be the first occasion where the people from the merged area would formally elect their leaders through balloting.
The SAPM dubbed today as historic for the people of the tribal areas.
He added that provincial election in the recently merged Federal Administered Tribal Area (FATA) was a great leap forward for Pakistan.
Durrani hailed the sacrifices made by the tribal people of Pakistan and said that it was not hidden from the people of Pakistan.
A crucial session of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly was held on May 27, 2018 to pass a bill for the merger of the FATA with the province despite strong protest by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) which was later approved and adopted.
