PPP takes a big U Turn

On Saturday, Asif Ali Zardari, the former president and co-chairman of the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP), expressed his confidence in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), stating that the new census notification has made fresh delimitation necessary.

In a statement released by the PPP on their social media platform, the co-chairman expressed his unwavering trust in Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Rana and all ECP members, with hopes that the commission will conduct elections in accordance with the Constitution.

Zardari's comments followed the demands of several PPP leaders, including chairman Bilawal Bhutto, who called on the ECP to announce the election date, emphasizing that elections should be held within the constitutional timeframe of 90 days.

Furthermore, Asif Ali Zardari urged the caretaker government to expedite the initiatives initiated through the Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC).

Addressing the ongoing economic crisis in the country, the former president added, "Our primary concern should be the economy rather than politics."

This change in the PPP's stance occurred a day after PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto urged the ECP to announce the general election date and adhere to the constitutional requirement of conducting elections within 90 days. During a conversation with journalists in Karachi, the former foreign minister called on those attempting to impose puppet governments on Pakistan to refrain from such experiments and allow the people of Pakistan to make their own decisions
