The statement voiced the hope that the sacrifices made during this election would not be in vain. The ISPR aspires that this electoral exercise will act as a catalyst for strengthening democracy in Pakistan, paving the way for realizing the aspirations of the people.

Concluding the statement, the ISPR reassured the nation that the armed forces remain dedicated to upholding peace and security in the country. They stand ready to provide unwavering support in safeguarding the democratic traditions of the state.
