It is worth mentioning that in view of the threat of the global coronavirus outbreak, the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) has proposed to the Election Commission to postpone the Azad Kashmir election.

The NCOC stated in a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) that the coronavirus epidemic may spread during the general election in July.

NCOC further stated that the election should be postponed for two months to save the people of Azad Kashmir from the impact of the epidemic.

The letter said: “A political rally due to the election will cause the virus to spread further in the state.”
