ISLAMABAD  - Prime Minister Justice (Retd) Mir Hazar Khan Khoso has said that all is set to hold forthcoming general elections under the supervision of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in free, fair and transparent manner.

He was talking to German Ambassador to Pakistan, Dr Cyrill Nunn, who called on him at the PM’s House here on Tuesday.

The German Ambassador congratulated the Prime Minister for the excellent arrangements made for holding of the elections.

The Prime Minister said that though there have been some terrorist incidents, it will by and large not affect the voter turnout, which he expected would be reasonably good.

Dr Nunn said that the European Union Observers mission visiting Pakistan to monitor the elections, headed by German Member of Parliament Michael Gahler, was of the view that the arrangements for holding elections are far better as compared to previous elections in 2008.

The Prime Minister said that Pakistan and Germany enjoy excellent relations and thanked the German government for its assistance during times of natural calamities.
