Caretaker PM Kakar Addresses Concerns on Electoral Process and Security Challenges

ISLAMABAD: Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar has assured that the government will investigate complaints about obstacles preventing some people from participating in the electoral process.

In an interview with a private television channel, he emphasized that people are free to vote for the candidates of their choice, and there is no policy to exclude anyone from the political process.

Regarding the incidents of May 9, Kakar stated that those involved in disruptive behavior during that time should not be allowed to hold public office, although the Election Commission will ultimately decide on candidate qualifications and disqualifications.

He acknowledged that while the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) as a whole should not be linked to the May 9 incident, those directly or indirectly involved should face legal consequences.

Kakar expressed concern over social unrest and chaos on May 9, stating that it endangered Pakistan’s security and could have severe implications for the state.

He emphasized that maintaining public order is a lawful tool, and the administration has historically used it to confine the movement of people as a preemptive measure.

Discussing the Balochistan protesters in Islamabad, Kakar affirmed everyone’s right to protest with lawful behavior. However, he clarified that law enforcement agencies would take action if the situation escalated into a breach of law and order. A provincial government committee was formed to address the issues raised by the protesters.

Kakar highlighted the challenges faced by Balochistan, including terrorism over the past two decades. He expressed concern over recent incidents, such as the burning of people at the coastal highway and attacks on the Hazara community.

He called for support from political and civil organizations for the martyrs of law enforcement agencies, emphasizing the state’s right to use force to protect unarmed civilians.

Regarding Israel, Kakar stated that there is no suggestion under consideration to recognize Israel. He described Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu as a war criminal, advocating for the investigation of Israel’s war crimes. Pakistan aims to send relief to Palestinians and raise their rights at international forums, including the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
