ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Raja Riaz said that the appointment of Finance Minister Ishaq Dar as caretaker prime minister could rule out the possibility of elections in the country for at least two years.
Expressing his views, Riaz said: “Instead of holding immediate elections, there is an urgent need to get the country out of crisis.”
“As the Leader of the Opposition, I will recommend three names to the government for the appointment of the interim prime minister. I am consulting with the friends in the opposition to finalise the names for the caretaker prime minister,” Riaz said.
“I will make a final decision regarding the name of the caretaker prime minister in the first week of August with the prime minister. The names will be finalised in the first phase for the caretaker setup,” he maintained.
