Balochistan National Party Chief Akhtar Mengal and Balochistan Awami Party parliamentary leader Khalid Magsi on Sunday called on Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif.
During the meeting, leaders of both parties congratulated Shehbaz Sharif on taking oath of the office of prime minister and expressed their resolve to work closely with the federal government for the socio-economic prosperity of the country.
Khawaja Saad Rafique, Sardar Ayaz Sadiq and Rana Sanaullah, PML-N members of the National Assembly, were also present during the meeting.
The prime minister appreciated Akhtar Mengal, Khalid Magsi and their leaders for showing resolve to work collectively for strengthening of the democracy and public welfare.
Meanwhile, a recent Gallup Pakistan survey has found that about 69 per cent of Pakistanis feel that the elections in the country should be held as soon as possible.
Around 31% of respondents said that elections should be held on time i.e. in 2023.
The survey was conducted in over 100 districts from April 10 to 11, using phone methodology.
The call for early elections was the highest in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) where 78 per cent wanted early elections.
In Sindh, 68 per cent desired early elections while in Punjab 65 per cent of respondents said they were also in favour of early polls.
The Gallup Pakistan said the sample size was small in Balochistan hence disaggregation of the result of the province was not statistically significant and therefore not reported.
