Lahore:  The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) on Saturday called for early elections in the country as a measure needed to combat  rising inflation and the economic crisis of Pakistan.

The demand was put forth by PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif as they addressed a press conference following a meeting at the latter's residence, reports Geo News.

Shahbaz was quoted as saying by Geo News that matters related to PDM, skyrocketing inflation, increase in electricity, flour prices, and dengue were discussed during the meeting.

The Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly said all political parties and the masses demand free and fair elections in the country, which is the "only way to take Pakistan forward".

"This is not an easy path; we will have to commit all our energies to it, work, day and night, and only then can we take the country back to the state it was in during 2018 — after that, we can take the country towards progress," he said.
