Turkey Elections on 24 Jun 2018 – Erdogan sworn in as President on 9 July (Process completed within 15 days). Malaysia Elections on 9 May 2018

Mahathir sworn in as PM on 10 May (process completed within One day). Pakistan elections 25 July

After 13 Days Election Commission is blocking 23 notifications and Care Taker Government enjoying extension of their honey moon (Process expected to last for at least one month)

No government institution is really responsible to stop the delay. Supreme Court must take Sue Motto. Country cannot afford to be ruled directionless under a non serious care taker set up for 2-3 months and to allow intrigues & conspiracies. We need reforms & restructuring for Commission Commission & Care Taker Government.

We must follow Malaysian model of transition of power.
PM with single majority party must sworn in within 48 hours of elections results to avoid uncertainty & chaos.
Process of recounting,court reviews & joining of Independents & other parties to their choice of party may continue later on.
