Elections in Pakistan and the International Consequences

no. 46 (499)

The parliamentary elections in Pakistan on 11 May, together with changes of army chief and chief justice later this year, open a potentially risky transition that can, however, strengthen democracy in the country. Although the next government is unlikely to bring fundamental changes to Pakistan’s foreign policy, empowering civilian leadership over the army may lead in the long term to improved cooperation with neighbours and stabilisation in the region. The EU can play an important role in supporting peaceful changes through its Election Observation Mission and close engagement with the next government.
