ISLAMABAD: The European Union (EU) Election Observer Mission has prepared a list of 50 recommendations for parties and the Election Commission of Pakistan, based on observations of May 11 elections.

EU Election Observer Mission head, Michael Gahler met Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Monday at his residence to share the recommendations that would be made public on Wednesday.

“The recommendations by the commission would be a good source of information for the future reference of all concerned parties,” said Jan Achakzai, official JUI-F spokesperson, while refusing to share the recommendations.

The EU mission chief met Fazl particularly because he had earlier expressed concerns over the free and fair conduct of elections.
