ISLAMABAD, Nov 5 (Reuters) Pakistan will hold a national election on schedule, Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz said today, as Western allies sought reassurances that polls expected in January will go ahead despite the imposition of emergency rule.

''Our thinking about the election is that it will be held according to schedule,'' Aziz told a news conference.

Aziz did not specify whether he meant the polls would take place in January.
