  1. Caretaker government is nonsense & should not be established. This nonsense should not be a part of democracy and parliamentary system.
    The Election Commission of Pakistan should be brought under the ambit of law and should function like any other government department.
    In the current environment, the Election Commissioner has become the ultra-executive of the state and considers himself as the Supreme Chief Justice of Pakistan, which is against the Constitution of Pakistan.
    The Election Commission and the Supreme Court have violated the agreement between the citizens and the state by not protecting the constitution. Now is the time to raise the issue of holding elections in Pakistan before the United Nations. As has happened in the lawless states of Africa and South America – Haiti, Congo, etc.
