EU Ambassador Jean-François Cautain met Saturday with H.E. Mr Ishaq Dar, Finance Minister of Pakistan and Monday with Honourable Mr Justice Sardar Raza, Chief Election Commissioner of Pakistan. In the meetings the Ambassador handed over the final report on the EU Electoral Follow-up Mission (EFM), which visited Pakistan in February 2016 to discuss the electoral reform process with key stakeholders, based on the fifty recommendations of the EU election observation mission, which was deployed for the May 2013 parliamentary elections.

The Presidential and governmental elections held in February and April 2016 were satisfactory from a technical standpoint, thanks to progressive improvements to electoral administration capacities, despite the incidents that took place on the island of Anjouan. The number of Comorians who voted reflects the fact that democracy is firmly established in the country.

Let me start by expressing our condolences for the many victims of the earthquake in Ecuador and also in Japan a few days ago. As you know, all our efforts are mobilised to give support to the Ecuadorian authorities in these hours.
 
Let me also say that today is a sad anniversary, because exactly one year ago more than 800 people died in a drowning in the Mediterranean Sea. The work that the European Union is doing on migration will be at the centre of our meeting today - obviously the external part of our work on migration.
