Zardari For Talks On Holding Same-Day Polls
Former President and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Zardari has said his party is not averse to holding elections but had objection to its timing, stressing that elections to parliament and provincial assemblies should be held on the same dates. In an interview with a private news channel, he said: “I am not refusing elections; my only dispute is regarding the dates. Which political force is scared of elections? My only contention is that it’s too soon,” he said. When asked if elections could be pushed beyond October, he said it would be a “foolish thought”.
