Elections after electoral reforms, stresses Asif Ali Zardari

KARACHI: Former president and PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari said Wednesday that Pakistan would move towards the general elections only after the government introduces electoral reforms.

“Electoral and NAB (National Accountability Bureau) reforms are included in our game plan,” the ex-president said during a press conference, noting that if polls are held before reforms, then any government that comes into power will face the issues that the past and present regimes are facing.

Electoral reforms will take three to four months, he said, adding that the government will not go for elections without them.

“We do not want any selected person to come into power again”, Zardari said, adding that he has persuaded PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif over the electoral reforms ahead of the elections.

He said the government will take all the coalition parties on board ahead of making decisions.

The PPP co-chairman said that the Opposition is now calling for elections after the coalition parties formed a government. “We did not refuse to hold elections. We will hold elections after electoral reforms,” he added.
