Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, who is serving as caretaker prime minister, has categorically denied that there will be any postponements of the next general elections.
He reaffirmed that the elections will be announced and carried out according to the timetable in an interview with a private television channel, and he emphasised that there would be no postponements that were predictable in the near future.
Prime Minister Kakar reaffirmed the caretaker government’s unwavering commitment to ensuring free and fair elections, and he emphasised that all legally registered political parties possess the legitimate and constitutional right to engage in election campaigning, to mobilise their supporters, and to seek public backing.
In addition, Prime Minister Kakar emphasised that the caretaker government is unwaveringly committed to ensuring free and fair elections. Nevertheless, he made it clear that the government should not be held responsible in the event that a person is prohibited from taking part in the democratic process due to legal constraints.
In response to assertions that the caretaker administration had shown favouritism towards the PML-N, he dismissed the allegations as normal political techniques that parties use in the run-up to elections in order to gather support from the general public.
The Prime Minister, in answer to a question, emphasised his confidence in working with the military leadership and reaffirmed that the caretaker government maintains the ability to make the final decision.
In a separate turn of events, the Election Commission of Pakistan gave an assurance to political parties that their ideas for essential revisions to the code of conduct for the next general elections would be appropriately examined. This comes in light of the fact that the elections are scheduled to take place soon. During a consultative meeting of political parties that was organised to discuss on the code of conduct, this promise was provided.
During the conference, which was presided over by the Chief Election Commissioner, Sikandar Sultan Raja, representatives of various political parties voiced their opinions and made suggestions with regard to the code of conduct for the general elections.
The Election Commission has reaffirmed its commitment to strictly implementing the code of conduct in order to guarantee that the elections will be carried out in a manner that is free, fair, and open to public scrutiny.
