Justice (retd) Maqbool Bakar, the caretaker chief minister of Sindh, accepted the decision to offer leave during this period, citing the approaching general elections.

Details suggest that staff will be deployed in various regions and that government educational institutions will be converted into polling places for the elections. The decision to observe the holidays from February 6 to February 9 resulted from this.
