Senators belonging to the embattled PML-N have expressed serious reservations regarding the countrywide elections due in less than a week, demanding that the Election Commission of Pakistan and the caretaker government allay their concerns urgently.

PML-N senator Mushahid Hussain Syed claimed that some party workers from Okara had called him yesterday and said that they were approached by "people from the agriculture department" — a phrase the PML-N has been using to reference security personnel — who asked them to vote for the "jeep".

I told them the jeep has punctured now. —Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed

The PML-N senator also said that the caretaker government "has failed completely" and suggested that his party will move to have the Constitution amended in order to eliminate the caretaker set-up.
