PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has called for elections to be held “as soon as possible” within the constitutional limit of 90 days. The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has ruled out elections this year, but the 90-day limit for holding polls ends on November 9. The ECP justifies the delay by citing the need to complete the new digital census and delimit constituencies. Bilawal emphasized that the country is currently facing major issues such as inflation, unemployment, and poverty. He stated that the PPP’s fight is against these issues, not against political opponents. He argued that holding elections soon, according to the Constitution, would allow the PPP to serve the people and address the economic challenges.
Regarding a statement by Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the former head of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), Bilawal responded that the PPP was ready for elections on multiple occasions. He also highlighted the difference in interpretation of the Constitution between the PPP, PDM, and the ECP. Bilawal urged the ECP to announce the election dates and schedule. He criticized the ECP’s decision to transfer officials in Sindh and called for the review of its actions. Bilawal also addressed the ongoing political situation and emphasized the importance of respecting the people’s choice in elections. He warned against attempts to impose puppet leaders on the country and emphasized the need for the people to make their own decisions.
