ISLAMABAD (AP) — A spokesman for the Pakistani president says that nationwide parliamentary elections will be held May 11.
Farhatullah Babar said Wednesday that the president had approved a proposal finalizing the May date for the upcoming election.
The polls will mark the first time that one civilian government has handed over power to another.
That's a first for Pakistan, which has a history of military rulers assuming power.
