The Most Important Election of Pakistan History(Election 2013)
The country with the population of almost 180 million and a nuclear power but still considered as the failed state in the world. Why?, literacy rate in Pakistan is 58% which is lowest in the region and the spending on education is also the lowest, 70% of country budget spent on debt serving and defence
Picture of Pakistan is extremely dismal but is there any hope? will Pakistan retreat and become the Asian tiger, will the youngster who are more than 50% of Pakistan population will be able to change Pakistan, there are many question in the mind of people of Pakistan, who sees every day Terrorism,Lawlessness,Poverty and hunger. The answer which I believe is next elections.
The major Parties which will participate in the next elections are PML(N),PPP,Tehrek-e-Insaf,PML(Q),MQM,Jamat Islami.
Mian Nawaz Sharif Party is one of the favourite to win the elections, Nawaz Sharif was the prime minister two times although both times he could not able to complete his tenure of 5 years and also not able to believer as people was expecting from him, In his first tenure Ghulam Ishaq khan who was the President at that time dissolve the assembly and in his second tenure Chief of Army Staff General Musharraf took over by charging that Mian Nawaz Sharif tried to kill him by not allowing to land his plane when was returning from Sri Lanka to Pakistan.
Pakistan Peoples Party is currently the ruling party of Pakistan and President Asif Ali Zardari is the co-chairman of the Party, Opposition parties and people of Pakistan are extremely disappointed with the current government as the economic condition has worsen during the current government there is extreme terrorism, lawlessness and corruption.
There is no such chance that Pakistan Peoples Party will be able to win the next election as there is so much internal issues even in the party and those who where close with party are not even seen in the party.
I believe that the current dent in the party is long lasting and this tenure of ppp will push him to only a province party and there support will only be in sindh now.
Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI)
Imran Khan a cricketer turned politician is one of the most famous leader in Pakistan there are few independent survey which suggests that he is the most famous amongst all the leaders. But critics believe that he will not able to won the elections as he is only famous in urban areas not in rural areas where population is not very literate and in the rural areas there is a tendency that they support there clan. But if his party able to bring his voter to the polling station and generate the same momentum which he is doing at the moment, there is a very good chance that he might won the election. The way he is motivating people and highlighting country issues and corruption, I am seeing imran khan as prime minister of Pakistan with clear majority in 2013 election
Chaudhry Shujahat Hussain is leading the party, this party has rule the country when General Musharraf was the president but after the return of Mian Nawaz Sharif into Politics and People Party ruling the country, there major party contestant has left the party.
But they have few candidates who are popular in there constituency and have some support in the rural areas they can get few seats in the assembly
Altaf Hussain who is the party leader and running the party from London and popular in Karachi and Hyderabad, Although this party was formed to represent Migrants (Muhajir), but now they are expanding to all party of the country, but they are still not popular in other party of the country, because the label of fascist party is still with them in other party of the country.
This is a religious party and they surprised all the country when they formed an alliance of Muttidha Majlis Amal and won more than expected seats. In this election there success is also lies if all the religious parties able to form the alliance.
The next election is considered as the most important in Pakistan History because we might see some surprises in the current structure of Pakistan politics .
The main battle will be between PTI and PML(N). If PTI able to generate the election wave and there chances are high to win the election and PML(N) they don't need to do something extraordinary, they already attracted undecided voter to vote PML(N)
The situation is dismal, there is loadsheading, lawlessness, corruption,but there is still light at the end of tunnel
