Pakistan's Supreme Court on July 24 revised the date for the presidential election, asking the election commission to hold it on July 30 instead of August 6. The court made the order as many of the lawmakers who will elect a replacement for President Asif Ali Zardari will be paying pilgrimages or offering special prayers on August 6 for the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which ends a few days later.
