Will new elections in Pakistan prove to be Savior? If we assume that the new elections can solve more issues in the country, can the results of the new elections be accepted by everyone? In fact, we have seen the same kind of manipulation in previous elections as well. For example, Ghulam Ahmad Bilour, says that he did not lose the election to Imran Khan instead he lost due to rigging.
This is just an example. If we go to the general elections under these circumstances, who will guarantee that the same four-party alliance will not manipulate the elections and the winning party will not turn a blind eye? In the current political scenario, it is apparent that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) are rivals, one cannot be sure if the establishment will remain impartial, while the other publicly claims that our government will end the control of the establishment at this time. So, in this scenario, if we go to the side of the general elections, what guarantee is there that the results will be accepted by everyone?”
No definitive answer can be given as to whether new elections in Pakistan will be a solution or not. The outcome of an election depends on various factors including the candidates and their policies, voter behavior, and overall political and economic conditions. Ultimately, only time will tell what impact the elections will have on the country and its issues. It’s important for citizens to be informed and make their decisions based on facts, rather than just hearsay or personal opinions.
After the 2018 elections, all parties agreed that electoral reforms are necessary before the next elections. Were we successful in making reforms? In the early days of the Tehreek-e-Insaf government, a 33-member parliamentary committee was formed. If that committee failed, should this process have come to a full stop? We have failed to give the right to vote to overseas Pakistanis, and we have not agreed on this issue, let alone, we have reservations about nationwide exercises like the population census, and we do not recognize the resulting constituencies. Now the government says that the new digital census will start in March and It will end in April, then new constituencies will be formed as a result.
Political attitudes have reached the level of hostility, no political party allows political tolerance to flourish within itself and does not adopt a political attitude towards any other political party. Yes, voices of rebellion are being raised from within every political party, every party leader wants the ministry to remain with him and all the major posts of the party with his family members, there is a Pashto proverb that says ” Mem Zarma, Tola Zama” As if I have the right to everything, how wise is it to expect these political parties to adopt political attitudes and democratic values? How can it adopt a political and democratic attitude in front of the party or its rival, so the request is to move towards electoral reforms as soon as possible, all parliamentary political parties and stakeholders should sit together and find a way for clean and transparent elections. Don’t cry about four constituencies, thirty-five punctures, and RTS tomorrow.
