Pakistan's caretaker PM, Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, reportedly ruled out the possibility of military interference in the forthcoming parliamentary elections in the country. Speaking to The Associated Press on Friday (local time) on the sidelines of the UNGA annual general debate, Kakar emphasized that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), not the military, would oversee the polls. He also stated that fair elections can occur without the jailed former Prime Minister Imran Khan or his party members.
