The country's main political parties confirmed they would resume the race to restore democracy but said the government must ensure candidates are protected.
Pakistan election officials were Wednesday poised to announce the date of crucial polls, thrown into chaos in the wake of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto's assassination.
