Faisal Karim Kundi, a senior leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), reiterated the demand for holding elections within a 90-day timeframe. He expressed the party’s readiness for the upcoming polls, expressing confidence in winning with a majority of votes.
Mr. Kundi’s statement coincided with the return of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif to the country. He welcomed Nawaz Sharif’s announcement regarding his return while noting that Nawaz had traveled abroad for medical treatment and advised consulting legal experts before returning.
Mr. Kundi emphasized that every political leader has the right to run an election campaign for their party and highlighted the PPP’s commitment to representing the interests of the poor, laborers, and farmers.
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari remarked that even the Election Commission was uncertain about the election date, with only one party claiming to possess such knowledge. During his visit to Muzaffargarh, he mentioned the party’s attempt to establish a new Charter of Democracy and discussed the challenges faced by national institutions due to attacks on May 9. Bilawal called for the political process to involve only those not connected to the May 9 incidents.
He also revealed the party’s election slogan, “Hum Sab ka Pakistan” (Pakistan for All), and pledged increased support for the poor and hardworking individuals, emphasizing that a prosperous farming community would lead to a prosperous Pakistan.
