Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar stated that consistency in policies can only be achieved under a one-party rule, not in a liberal democracy and parliamentary system. He explained that in a parliamentary system, policies are made based on assessments of economic and political challenges, and the people judge the rulers based on these policies. He emphasized that expecting uniform policies in a liberal democracy is unrealistic and governments should demonstrate their ability to make decisions and take responsibility for them. Regarding the next general elections, Kakar mentioned that announcing the poll date is beyond the mandate of the interim government. He also discussed the issue of cross-border smuggling, stating that his government has zero tolerance for it and the law will be enforced. He mentioned discussions about the Afghan Transit Trade agreement and reopening of the Torkham border, emphasizing that restoration of Afghan trade does not mean a return to smuggling. Kakar also addressed the involvement of Afghan refugees in smuggling and outlined a policy to address this issue. He explained that the rise in petroleum product prices during the caretaker government’s tenure is linked to global increases and hinted at introducing easy instalments for electricity consumers using up to 200 units. Finally, he addressed the political alignment of Fawad Hasan Fawad and Ahad Cheema, stating that he considers them capable individuals with no affiliation to any political party.
