US backs free, transparent elections in Pakistan, says State Department official
Addressing the reporters at the Department Press Briefing on Tuesday, spokesperson Heather Nauert expressed that the United States along with other international partners has supported Pakistan’s implementation of its historic 2017 electoral reforms law.
“My understanding is that this is the first time that law will actually be put into effect for these elections. We hope that the new comprehensive and transparent legal framework facilitates the peaceful transfer of civilian power to a democratically elected government,” she added.
In response to a query about Colonel Joseph, who rammed into a motorcyclist in Pakistan and killed him a month back, the spokesperson stated that no further updates had been provided other than those already shared with the media.
For a free and transparent election, an interim setup will be taking charge of the public offices.
Justice (r) Nasirul Mulk has been elected as the caretaker Prime Minister while Nasir Saeed Khosa has been nominated as the caretaker chief minister of Punjab, the biggest province in terms of population and contribution of seats to the National Assembly.
