LAHORE, Pakistan, Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari Friday called on his party's leadership to begin preparations for the country's next general elections in March.

DawnNews reported Zardari said the government would ensure the elections are transparent to preclude criticism by opposition parties. He said the country's election commission would have complete autonomy in running the elections and would have the government's cooperation.

Zardari said he hoped the Pakistan People's Party would remain in power with the help of its coalition partners, DawnNews said.

Zardari made the comments during a meeting attended by Punjab Gov. Latif Khosa, Deputy Prime Minister Pevez Elahi, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira and other high-level officials.
