ISLAMABAD: Ambassador of Tajikistan to Pakistan Ismatullo Nasredin has termed the Presidential Election 2020 as very important for his country’s stability that is why some 79 polling stations have also been established in different countries to enable the Tajik citizens residing there to use their voting right.
At the polling station established at the Tajik Embassy in Islamabad to facilitate its citizens in Pakistan in particular in Islamabad, to cast their votes, the Envoy expressed the hope that some forty Tajik citizens residing in Islamabad will come and cast their votes.
To a question about Pak-Tajik relations, Ismatullo Nasredin said that Pakistan and Tajikistan enjoy close brotherly, friendly and strategic relations. He said that Pakistan has special importance for his country and that it is also playing an important role for the regional stability.

He termed CASA-1000, a best example of regional connectivity. He expressed the hope that despite technical difficulties the project will be completed and will prove beneficial for all the stake holders especially for Pakistan.
When enthusiastic voters (both male and female) present to cast their votes, questioned about their expectations they pinned with the Presidential Election in Tajikistan, they all were of the view that the election will further strengthen their country and ensure its economic viability and will equally play significant role for the wellbeing of the masses.
It is worth to mention here that the Embassy undertook elaborate arrangements to facilitate the voters to use their right in a peaceful environment. All the staff members under the command of the Ambassador himself were not only warmly receiving the voters but were guiding them to the relevant desks for the voting.
It may be noted that there are five candidates including the sitting President in the run and hopefully the unofficial results will be announced on Monday. It is important to note that the Government of Tajikistan, under the strategic leadership of sitting President Eomali Rahmon played a vital role to support businessmen, investors and common people alike through befitting macroeconomic initiatives and financial stimulations. It is hoped that this election will determine the future path and process of politicization and democratization.
