LAHORE: President Asif Ali Zardari says consensus will be achieved on the caretaker government and date for elections.

In an interview to BBC Urdu‚ he said the interim government would comprise non-controversial people and no-one would be able to question their sincerity.

He said polls would be held on time and the caretaker government would have complete authority as envisaged in the Constitution to hold free and transparent polls.

About his son’s political career‚ the president said Bilawal Bhutto Zardari would take some time to assume the responsibility of running the PPP because he was still young.

On the war against terror, he said Pakistan being a frontline state had suffered losses of human lives and economic complications.

He said the conflict in Afghanistan continuing for over 40 years had created a number of social and economic problems for Pakistan. —Online
