General elections will be held in October, according to Rasheed

RAWALPINDI: General elections will be held in October, according to a statement made by the former interior minister Sheikh Rasheed on Friday.The AML leader stated in a series of tweets that general elections will be held in place of by-elections, and the country would be told about the constitutions of a new election commission and a caretaker administration.

Since the PTI’s victory in Punjab, where it defeated the PML-N in by-elections and also installed its chief minister, there have been rumours that the federal government may fall. However, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has dispelled any rumours by announcing that elections will be held on schedule.

The AML director made fun of PPP Co-Chair Asif Ali Zardari, who is quarantined after catching COVID-19, by claiming that others in isolation had also consented to organise elections.Rasheed criticised the ruling parties, saying they had lost all political legitimacy and couldn’t run away, go to the people, or bring their people back to the nation – a dig at PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif.
