Voter turnout likely to be reasonably good: PM


Caretaker Prime Minister Mir Hazar Khan Khoso on Tuesday said there had been some terrorist incidents, which would not affect the voter turnout on May 11.

“The turnout is expected to be reasonably good,” said the prime minister while talking to German Ambassador to Pakistan Dr Cyrill Nunn, who called on him here.

He said all was set to hold elections under the supervision of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in a free, fair and transparent manner.

Khoso said Pakistan and Germany enjoyed excellent relations and thanked the German government for its assistance during times of natural calamities.

The German ambassador congratulated the prime minister for excellent arrangements, made for holding of the elections.

Nunn said the European Union Observers Mission, which is visiting Pakistan to monitor the elections, headed by German Member of Parliament Michael Gahler, was of the view that the arrangements for holding elections were much better than those of previous elections.
