US picking no favourites amongst Pak politicians ahead of polls

Islamabad, Mar. 26 : The United States has said it has no 'favourites' among Pakistani politicians, and that they are looking forward to work with whoever is elected during the May 11 elections.

A senior US official, however, said that he does not want to return President Zardari to power or block Nawaz Sharif or Imran Khan from winning the forthcoming election, reports The Dawn.

Other US officials are equally enthusiastic in denying the general perception in Pakistan that the US government wants to influence the electoral process in Pakistan to bring in a friendly government.

US officials said that they are aware of "the conspiracy theories circulating in Pakistan" and regret that the Pakistani media "do little to dispel such baseless theories".

At a recent briefing at the State Department, spokesperson Victoria Nuland also regretted that the Pakistani people don't have good information about US policies towards their country and stressed the "need to work harder to get that message out".
