On Wednesday, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the Chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), stated that only one political party in the country is privy to the election date, while other parties and the chief election commissioner remain unaware of the polling date. He made these remarks during a public gathering in Muzaffargarh.
Bilawal expressed the need for prompt elections and raised concerns about a party that has announced the election date, asserting that polls will be held in February. He questioned how this party could have such information when neither he, nor the general public, nor the election commissioner are aware of the election date. Notably, Bilawal did not mention the name of the political party in question.
Furthermore, Bilawal reiterated his call for elections to be held within 90 days. He mentioned that his party would formulate its final policy regarding the elections during an upcoming meeting.
The top members of the PPP are scheduled to convene in Lahore for a Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting on Thursday. This meeting will address the current political situation and preparations for the upcoming general elections. Reports indicate that the party has also extended invitations to dissatisfied leaders such as Latif Khosa and Aitizaz Ahsan to attend the meeting.
