ISLAMABAD, May 13 (APP): The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday asked the winning candidates of national and provincial assemblies  to submit their returns of election expenses with returning officers till May 21. “Section 42(3A) of the Representation of the People Act, 1976, read  with Section 50 and Rule 30 of the Representation of the People (Conduct  of Election) Rule, 1977, requires every candidate returned to the National Assembly and provincial assemblies to submit to the returning officer concerned, a return of election expenses within 10 days from the poll of an election”, said the ECP in a statement here.
