ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan says it will hold an election for the country’s president on Aug. 6.
The country’s election commission said in a statement Tuesday that candidates can submit their nomination papers until July 24.
Pakistan’s president is elected by members of the Senate, National Assembly and the assemblies of the four provinces.
The current president, Asif Ali Zardari, has said he does not plan to run for a second term. His term ends in early September. His party, the Pakistan People’s Party, suffered a heavy defeat in parliamentary elections held in May.
The big winner in the election was the Pakistan Muslim League-N, led by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
The position of president in Pakistan became largely ceremonial after a constitutional amendment in 2010 transferred significant power to the prime minister.
