Polls to be held on February 8,General Asim



COAS General Asim Munir assured the Pakistani-American business community that general polls “will be held on February 8” next year.

The assurance was given during a meeting in the United States, just hours before the Supreme Court’s verdict on December 15, confirming the scheduled date for the polls.

The issue was discussed during General Asim Munir’s interaction with overseas Pakistanis at a dinner reception hosted by the Pakistan Embassy in Washington.
