Student Action Committee-USA

Objectives

  • Establishment of an independent Election Commission and independent interim government before the upcoming Pakistani elections can take place.
  • Lifting of all restrictions (including restrictions on spot checks, random visits to the polling stations) on agencies that are monitoring elections in Pakistan before the elections. The government should also make sure that international monitors can reach Pakistan well in time before the elections to monitor the pre-poll process.
  • Restoration of the Pakistani judiciary to its status pre-November 3, 2007.
  • Release of all political prisoners in Pakistan, including lawyers, judges, students, civil rights activists, and political party workers.
  • Lifting of all restrictions on the media, including Code of Conduct for the Press and PEMRA ordinance, so that the media can broadcast live political events, rallies, and political debates.
  • Lifting of all restrictions on right to assembly, right to effectively campaign, and right to protest before the elections.
