Elections in February next year, says Raja Riaz

ISLAMABAD: Former opposition leader in the National Assembly (NA) Raja Riaz said on Saturday that general elections would be held in February next year.

Riaz’s statement came hours after Balochistan Awami Party Senator Anwaarul Haq Kakar was named the country’s interim prime minister. 

The announcement has been made three days after the dissolution of the NA on August 9, three days ahead of its mandated period, following which elections are to be held within 90 days.

However, a delay in the elections has become almost certain with the approval of the results of the 2023 digital census as a fresh delimitation, which may take months, has now become compulsory.
