Pakistan Foreign Office made it clear that the government was in no mood to accommodate observers from the Commonwealth at this juncture since it had suspended Pakistan’s membership.

Whereas, Pakistan will be hosting hundreds of foreign election observers, comprising Parliamentarians, NGO representatives, officials and media persons from several countries, including the US and the European Union, for the January 8 polls in the country.

Observer passes would give the visiting foreign monitors access to polling stations, the election officers and other stakeholders, he stated.
