Basically, this is the work of the Election Commission in constitutional and legal terms. And we are sure that they are going to perform their work with utmost honesty.

On the question regarding the ban on expression of opinion in Pakistan, he said that there is freedom of expression in the country, everyone’s name including Imran Khan can be taken and broadcast, our indicators in this regard are much better in the region. The media has freedom in the country, the media can raise its voice on any issue regarding the government, its institutions or economic affairs. He was asked that the cases against Chairman PTI Imran Khan give an impression that an attempt is being made to keep him out of the political process. And I also hope that the judicial process is transparent so that his followers and other observers can see that it is not a process to remove anyone from politics, but the law wants to take its course. Let the law take its course, it should apply to me as well as to others.
Anwarul Haq Kakar, on describing the caretaker government as the impression of the civilian face of the establishment, said that this impression comes with respect to every government, this is not a new impression, if Imran Khan’s government was formed in 2018, the selected government would have been accused on the same basis. And when the PDM government came, they had the same impression and similar allegations were leveled earlier too. In the specific political conditions of Pakistan, this kind of perception emerges and when the government comes, then the perception continues with the new face and new leadership, it is not so important. He said that the caretaker government is a continuation of the constitutional process, the leader of the house and the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly having a constitutional mandate were nominated and this caretaker government is the product of this.

I don’t think so. Regarding relations with America, he said that Pakistan’s relations in the region have their own requirements and Pakistan’s relations will be developed under these requirements, and along with this, it has historical relations with the West for 7 decades and they will continue to be maintained in the coming decades.
