Islamabad, Aug 12 (PTI) Senator Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar was on Saturday picked as Pakistan’s caretaker
Prime Minister to govern the cash-strapped country and oversee general elections later this year.
Outgoing Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and the Leader of Opposition Raja Riaz finalised his name
after two rounds of deliberations over the matter.
Kakar, a lawmaker belonging to Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), will lead a caretaker government
until a new election later this year.
Prime Minister Sharif recommended the dissolution of the National Assembly on August 9, three
days before the mandated term, therefore, according to the Constitution, the next general elections
will be held in 90 days.
The polls are expected to be delayed for a couple of months as new census results have been
approved by the outgoing government, which makes it a constitutional obligation to carry out
delimitation before elections. PTI NSA AKJ
