Pakistan Election 2013 l l Is the Pakistan of Jinnah or the Taliban?


"Jinnah's Pakistan?" Questioned a campaign promoted by the Pakistani secular party MQM, an allusion to which is considered the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah. "Or the Pakistan Taliban?" He added. The MQM tried that last year did a referendum so that the people of Pakistan to rule clearly about their country model, given the increasing conservatism of Pakistan and even incipient Talibanization in some areas. The referendum was not carried out finally for so advised the Pakistani secret services for security reasons. "The parliamentary elections referendum amount we wanted to do , "says Haider Abbas Rizvi convinced spokesman MQM in Sindh Province, southern Pakistan, referring to the legislative elections held on Saturday to renew the National Assembly the country and the four provinces.
The comparison is perhaps exaggerated, but it is true that among the formations that go to the polls,there is a marked difference between the leftist and secular parties , and the right-wing and Islamic. The secular have been in the crosshairs of the Taliban during the election campaign. The fundamentalists threatened to undermine their candidates, voters and supporters, and they did.
A total of 120 people have lost their lives during the election campaign . The formations have been attacked secular Pakistan People's Party (PPP) of the late Benazir Bhutto , the People's National Party (ANP) which is Pashtun, and the National United Movement (MQM). The result has been that these formations withdrew to election rallies in much of the country, and were limited to hanging posters, spreading messages online, and convene meetings of a small number of supporters. With the advantage that it can be given to the conservative parties. A total of 80.7 million voters were called to the polls on Saturday in an election that are considered historic for being the first to be held after a civilian government deici has completed its mandate in the country.
The turnout has reached 60% by the end of the day. "It's a very encouraging participation data," said a Afp Khurshid Alam, a senior official of the election commission. The schools have closed but has not yet transcended the final number of participation.
Polls not clear who will win, but which party will be punished. By all estimates, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), which was in government, will suffer electoral defeat. The reasons are several.
The assassination of Benazir Bhutto, which won him many votes in 2008, and is far away. The acute energy crisis facing the country, and has worsened over the last five years of the PPP government has disappointed the electorate. And the party does not have a visible head. Bhutto's widower, Asif Ali Zardari, generates animosity and, anyway, could not participate in the election campaign because, as president, should be kept apart. And his son, Bilawal Bhutto , considered heir apparent has hardly stepped Pakistan for fear of ending up like her mother, who was killed on December 27, 2007, when he tried to contest elections. Bilawal has made ​​a campaign to distance from Dubai, based on election advertisements in television and in the wide press in the country.
The conservative Muslim League of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif (PML-N) has taken advantage of the void, and exploit the main reason for the collapse of the PPP: the energy crisis. He has focused his entire campaign on the need to achieve the country's economic boom, and avoided ruling on the Taliban, as if the problem did not exist. Expected to be the party that gets the most votes, but it is almost impossible to get an absolute majority.
Favorite part also former cricketer Imran Khan and training conservative Justice Movement Pakistan (PTI) , which is emerging as the third most voted. Khan is the preferred candidate of the young, who see it as almost a national hero and the only candidate honest and not corrupt. However, his statements about the Taliban, setting them out and support their movement, have driven a more mature electorate.
