QUETTA: In a surprising turn of events, the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) is set to re-enter the political arena, reclaiming its iconic ‘Cow’ symbol. The Election Commission, responding to BAP’s request, has approved the restoration of the ‘Cow’ symbol for the party, overturning its earlier allotment of the ‘Eye’ symbol.

Initially, on January 9, the Election Commission released a list assigning the ‘Eye’ symbol to BAP. However, following subsequent deliberations, the commission reversed its decision, now designating the ‘Cow’ symbol to the party instead.

This sudden alteration in symbols has also led to an adjustment in the allotment for independent candidates. The ‘Eye’ symbol, initially reserved for BAP, is now available for independent contenders to choose from.

Political observers are closely watching BAP’s return to the election field under the familiar ‘Cow’ symbol, anticipating the strategic implications of this symbolic shift on the upcoming political landscape in Balochistan. The party’s move is likely to spark discussions and speculations among voters and political analysts alike. Stay tuned for more updates as the electoral drama unfolds.
