WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) Chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Near East, South Asia, Central Asia, and Counterterrorism, on Tuesday released the following statement on the recent elections in Pakistan:

“The people of Pakistan made their voices heard in long-awaited elections last week, and it is critical the election results reflect the will of the voters. I am concerned by reports of irregularities and alleged interference, including attacks on free press and restrictions to internet access, and I support the Biden administration’s call for those claims to be thoroughly investigated.”
