Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has said that early elections in Pakistan cannot be ruled out, and added that the issue could be discussed after the Senate elections in March and the presentation of budget in May.
“I do not rule it out,” The Express Tribune quoted Gilani, as saying.
