    Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister of Pakistan, stated on Saturday that the country’s upcoming general elections “would be held on time,” or after August 2023.

    In an interview with Anadolu Agency, Sharif stated unequivocally, “Let me make it completely clear that the next elections will be held on time.”

    He was replying to inquiries about Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), who has called for early elections.

    According to Sharif, “This government was established through a constitutional process and has the support of the people of Pakistan.”

    The present National Assembly’s mandate will expire in August 2023, after which an interim administration would be put in place and elections will be held, according to the prime minister of Pakistan.

    According to Sharif, the current coalition government is “busy dealing with the matters of significant importance” and “represents all political parties in the country except the PTI.”

    Notably, Khan announced on Saturday that his party has chosen to resign from every province assembly. This announcement was considered as a new effort to pressure the administration to call early elections for the nation.

    On Friday, Sharif travelled to Turkey for a two-day formal visit at President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s invitation.

    President Erdogan and Sharif jointly commissioned the third of four MILGEM corvette ships built by Turkey for the Pakistan Navy at the Istanbul Shipyard on Friday.
