Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar on Saturday vowed that the general elections would not be delayed due to the situation at the western and eastern borders of the country.
In a bid to end the uncertainty surrounding the general elections, the interim premier said that the government will not make any excuse for delay in polls.
The caretaker premier affirmed that measures would be taken to ensure that the election process proceeds smoothly without disruptions and emphasised the commitment to upholding the democratic process in the country.
To a query, PM Kakar said that there was freedom of expression in the country and their indicators in the region were much better in this regard.
About Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s cases, he strongly rebutted the impression that efforts were being made to keep the deposed premier out of politics.
He said it was a sub-judice matter as there were allegations against him, adding the impression that his arrest was not correct and hoped that the judicial process would be transparent.
