Islamabad, Nov 4: Pakistan's government is committed to holding national elections but was undecided when, Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz said today, a day after emergency powers were invoked to deal with militancy and a hostile judiciary.

''We are committed to making sure that elections are held and that democratic process flourishes in Pakistan,'' Aziz told a news conference. ''As a result of what has happened there could be some timing differences but no decision has been made.'' He said the emergency announced on Saturday by President Pervez Musharraf would be as short as possible. He said 400-500 people are being held under preventive detentions.
