Salam guys. Some of you will be aware that I came back from Pakistan a week ago and was feeling down because overwhelming feeling in north Punjab was pro PMLn. I predicted 55/60 seats for PTI two months ago sitting here in Manchester.

I felt like a mug when I saw the ground situation in different areas between Pindi and Lahore. But now looking at the campaign I am optimistic that PTI should get 50/60 seats.

12/15 in KP
15 from Pindi to Lahore( NA48-NA130).
10/12 south of Lahore to NA 197.
5/7 from Sindh
2/5 from Bilochistan and Tribal belt.

I think it was natural to feel that way but campaign has been quite effective so far and i expect tabdeeli razakars are also out talking to people in streets which will definitely make difference as Imran Khan's message is easy to sell.

Personally i would be satisfied even if PTI takes 50+ seats but anything is possible.

Very interesting read about 2 seats in Abbotabad NA 17 & 18

http://tribune.com.pk/story/540728/constituency-profile-abbottabad-is-up-in-the-air/

PTI has very good chance on both but NA 17 in particular

NA17: Mehtab Abbasi of PMLN won last time but PTI candidate Azhar Jadoon as an independent got 37000 votes but there was another Jadoon (Amanulllah) of PMLQ who got 35000 votes is likely to support his fellow Jadoon. PTI candidate's Hazara movement stance also goes in his favour.

NA18: Murtaza Abbasi of PMLN won NA 18 last time and could win again as PTI candidate and Hazara movement leader Haider Zaman belong to same tribe but apparently PMLN candidate didn't do much for his constituency so anything could happen as PTI candidate Sardar Yaqoob has won this seat in this past as well.

KPK and FATA alone have around 50 NA seats! :)) And I'm predicting PTI to win 75% of those at the very least Insh'Allah.
I'm still optimistic of 100+ seats for the PTI alone.

People fail to take into account the youth vote. Most of the surveys pretty much ignore this generation of voters. Many of who will come out on Election day and and turn the tide in favour of PTI, Insh'Allah.

PML-N candidates facing their own party men in various constituencies

LAHORE - Intra-party rivalries and groupings within Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) are affecting the election campaigns of most PML-N ticket holders, including new and old ones.
An Interesting situation is developing in several constituencies where PML-N candidates are not only facing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidates but also their own party men who are not ready to withdraw, despite being denied party tickets.
The other day PML-N leader Shoaib Niazi opened his election office in front of PML-N’s Rana Mashood, former deputy Speaker and party candidate from Lahore.
Niazi’s supporters are also threatening to bring out a white paper against Mashood.
A party insider told Pakistan Today that a similar situation prevails in many constituencies, with PML-N ticket holders pitted against their own party members.
This is making it difficult for genuine ticket holders to build their campaign with divided workers.
Initially, the party’s senior leadership took the situation lightly or overlooked it entirely. But with complaints starting to mount, a committee has been formed on the instruction of Ishaq Dar to look into divisions inside the party at a constituency level.
A source said in order to cool down rebels and withdraw them from contesting the Sharifs would have to intervene themselves.
Similarly, new comers in the line-up from Lahore, those who received tickets for the first time, are also groping in the dark. The party has decided in their favour and awarded them tickets but the party network of workers and supporters in the constituencies has not yet reconciled.
Sources told Pakistan Today there are 13 such constituencies including three National Assembly (NA) seats where serious rifts exist.
A senior party leader said party leaders would soon overcome these differences but for the time being the party’s campaign is not making any waves in the city due to cribbing in the party’s rank and file.

Five years that could have changed the face of Punjab, altered the outlook of the patwari and the thanedar, sacrificed at the altar of gimmickry. But it couldn’t have been otherwise. The Sharifs have been around for 30 years, a lifetime. Their specialty all these years has been the quick-fix gimmick. They can only repeat themselves, not chart anything new. Five more years and we’ll get more of the same. Mix flour and water and atta is what you get. Try this a hundred times and the result will still be the same.

I think ayaz sums it up above

I have a question to fellow PTI's supporters: Khan accepted Hashmi and Qureshi in his party - as far as I know, they were part of the status-quo at some point. What's the reason(s)? Khan has repeatedly voiced against the staus-quo. Are there more members he has accepted over the time from various loot maar parties?

Pakistan is not a Western country and this is very much a nit picking exercise. All these needless inspection of nitty gritties at this point in time makes no sense. PTI is an extremely young country in an equally immature democratic set up, election rhetoric hardly paint a truly accurate picture of party's political standing. One of the definite ways to judge a party's political leaning is through considering the nature of legislations they introduce and reforms they make whilst in power. So it will take at least few more democratic cycles before we start identifying all parties' political leaning.

But to still answer your question, the way Imran has been continuously praising the Western welfare system for past 20 years, and hoping to replicate in Pakistan, PTI could very much pass as a centre left party.

Thanks for clearing that :)

Program started with N league and finished with N league....They can make government only with alliances...

There are around 145 total seats in Punjab......And there is PTI,Q league in Punjab as well along with couple of PPP seats...

At best they can win 120 seats out of 272....And that can not be called strong at all...

According to all the surveys, they are predicted to win around 35-40% of the seats. In addition they have done a lot of work to smooth the road for post-election alliances. JI, Baluchistan national parties, JUI, MQM, ANP and even PPP would be willing to join them if it meant coming to power. PTI on the other hand is very isolated.

Yes I do know. Firstly, it's not just the gallup survey which has said this. Secondly when these same surveys showed PTI as being popular, they were being shown off by PTI as proof of their popularity. You can't have it both ways. At the moment, the upper limit for PTI seems to be 35% of the seats. So even in the best case scenario, it's not enough to form a government.

I am only concerned about the major 3 parties... PTI, PMLN, PPP... others not so much in this breakdown... my numbers are purely on what I see and think will go down as of today (no bias)...

Reserved seats i am not accounting for here...

PTI...... Fed. 1 Pun. 67 Sin. 11 Kpk. 19 Bal. 6 Fata. 7 = 111

PMLN... Fed. 1 Pun. 51 Sin. 5 Kpk. 1 Bal. 1 Fata. 2 = 61

PPP...... Fed. 0 Pun. 13 Sin. 21 Kpk. 2 Bal. 1 Fata. 1 = 38

These 3 will combine for 210 leaving 62 seats for other parties out of the 272...

These are my numbers as per my gut feelings as of today. Will update it on the 9th or 10th accordingly...

Winds of change: PTI workers upbeat on Islamabad electoral fortunes

Activists of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) are increasingly confident about their electoral fortunes in the federal capital where the party is vying for two National Assembly seats. One of the party’s stalwarts Makhdoom Javed Hashmi is contesting from NA-48 while Chaudhry Ilyas Mehrban, a youth leader, is competing from NA-49.
PTI leaders and workers say they can already feel the wind of change sweeping the country. Their confidence stems largely from the success of their party’s election rallies, particularly in Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
“Previously, we thought that we could secure around 20 seats from across the country, but now these seats could jump to 120 as we feel that the scenario is changing in our favour,” said PTI youth leader Ahmad Khattak. Imran Khan, according to Khattak, openly held rallies in different parts of the country, particularly in K-P, where some parties could not campaign and people were joining PTI everywhere.
Khattak expects Javed Hashmi to win the Islamabad seat due to his personal popularity as he won from Rawalpindi in 2008 despite the fact that he was an outsider.
Other party supporters are counting on its youth leadership. Some of them have even cited the example of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)’s weak position in the early phase of the 2008 elections, when the party had given its Islamabad tickets to two untested youth candidates. Even the contesting PML-N candidate Tariq Fazal Chaudhry publicly stated that the actual competition would be between the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) candidates and that the PML-N was contesting the elections just to record its presence. However, the PML-N’s youth candidates surprised everyone by winning at the eleventh hour.
The competition in NA-48
In the NA-48 constituency there is a four-way race between Jamaat-e-Islami (JI)’s candidate Mian Aslam, PPP’s Faisal Sakhi Butt, PTI’s Javed Hashmi and PML-N’s Anjum Aqeel Khan.
The JI and PML-N candidates are considered the top contenders for the seat. PTI still insists that veteran politician Javed Hashmi has the edge over them, because of his personal political clout along with the party’s popularity.
At the same time, the JI and PML-N candidates are expected to cut each other’s votes.
The battle for NA-49
On the other hand, the favourites from NA-49 are PML-N’s former lawmaker Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhry and PPP’s Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar. However, analysts say that the PML-N and JI candidates will cut each other’s votes in this constituency as well and that can benefit either PPP or PTI. People in the street say there has been an unpredictable election turnout in the two seats of Islamabad and Imran Khan’s slogan of change could change the entire scenario at the last moment.

Pre-poll rigging alleged: PHA officials ‘caught removing PTI flexes’

PTI workers caught on Friday city district government officials red-handed removing banners and flexes of Dr Yasmin Rashid, who is contesting against PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif in NA-120.

PTI candidate Dr Yasmin Rashid said her election banners and flexes had continuously being removed for the last one week despite the fact that she had paid fee to the Parks and Horticulture Authority.

She said the PTI had lodged a formal complaint with the DCO and Election Commission’s Punjab office, but the police did not arrest any miscreant.

On Friday morning, Dr Yasmin said the party workers spotted two PHA officials — Farooq Ghous Rana and Muhammad Hafeez — removing banners and flexes and putting them in a government vehicle. Both the accused were handed over to the DCO office.

Dr Yasmin told Dawn that PHA Director Mudassar allegedly threatened her as well as her supporters and later at a meeting at the DCO office said she should spare a mistake.

She said she and her supporters and workers never took law in their hands and had paid the fee to the PHA as per the Election Commission code of conduct, but PHA workers were removing her and PTI PP-140 candidate Zubair Khan Niazi’s banners and flexes.

“The PTI is meeting complete injustice in its campaign against PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif. We are using hard earned money, while the PML-N is using money plundered from the national exchequer,” she said in a harsh tone.

Dr Yasmin said the PTI would never allow any party, particularly the PML-N, to do pre-poll rigging in Lahore. “We will not tolerate any goonda elements to sabotage our election campaign that has reached door-to-door in the NA-120 constituency,” she asserted.

She said that she wanted to warn all those government officials who were on the payroll of the Raiwind palace to stop using cheap tactics and let the PML-N chief contest election in a free and transparent manner.

She said the Election Commission should also take notice of such instances that could be regarded as pre-poll rigging.

She said that PTI workers and Tabdeeli Razakars (change volunteers) were ready to face any kind of circumstances and check any rigging attempt even on polling day on May 11 and make leaders to lick the dust.

Later, Dr Yasmin addressed a women convention in Rajgarh and a rally in Anarkali.

When the most sophisticated and powerful military force in the the history of mankind has failed to beat the Taliban in Afghanistan, what makes you think we can do the same in Pakistan? When the US, after a decade of military action, is now embracing the idea of dialogue, wouldn't it be slightly pointless for us to repeat their mistakes?

no one supports dialogue with terrorists...
only terrorists supporters or defenseless would do that ..

it was army's (+ agencies) job to cleanse this cancer ..but they cannot do this without the full support of civilian parties..
when parties like pml-n and pti (plus media) keep misleading the awam, there will never be a national consensus against terrorists!

please do not repeat his ** as he got not clue how to tackle terrorists...

learn from sri lanka how to deal with such terrorists...

bottom line: i want pti to win so we all know that ik would be worse than mma rule in kpk

Cease your incessent illogical whining..your govt has failed to support the armed forces in five long years of fighting..it is to the credit of our brave jawaans that they have fought these **** to the last bullet and have made a difference..your govt hasnt even managed a paragraph with regards to a anti terrorism strategy..

Let me enlighten you on what failure and incompetence is..simply look at your precious ppp govt and then examine their sheer ineffectiveness when dealing with this problem..

As i said before your outburst betrays your lack of a brain and i have seen nothing that suggests you can prepare and then defend your position.

The PPP is a failed party run by psychophants traitors and the corrupt..you are no different if you support them..or your just a clown..like that fool bilawal..

Also, not sure why it was scheduled in afternoon whereas smaller towns were covered in the evening.

I believe PTI isn't fielding any candidate from Bahawalpur. They did a seat adjustment with the Nawab of Bahawalpur's party (whichever that is).
And I don't know how much support he enjoys in his area. Disappointing nevertheless.

There is a difference between Lankan Tamils and our Tribal people... neither English nor Russians were able to conquer them and now American are also looking for tallks......

Here battlefield is completely different....

First you need to minimise their strength by opting out of American war....thus after removing the source of their motivation, you can gradually eliminate them....

As long as they have this excuse that Pakistani state is aiding Americans they will continue to fight their so called jihad...And there is no dearth of individuas who are ready to die for Jihad...

It would be stupid to expect a consensus between awaam whose one portion is Madrassah educated,other goes to sarkari schools,other to Private English medium and some follow British A/O levels...and yet many do not go to schools at all...

It is pretty clear if you try to think about it....This way you can minimise the damage...

The only way you can deal with Taaliban and Tribal people is by brainwashing 'em. The more you will try suppress 'em the more they will fight back. Educate 'em and brainwash 'em. If we had started this brainwash program 15 years ago we would have been in much better position right now.

After WWI strong economic and military sanctions were imposed on Germany yet they came back even more strongly in WWII. After WWII what America did is brainwashed Germans. They controlled Germans through education and by influencing their culture on Germans. Same thing happened in Japan. In short, Nationalism was German and Japan's pride they took that pride way from 'em. We have to do same with Tribal and Pakhtoon people. They think fighting against Western countries and killing people for Islam is a matter of pride. We have to take away that pride. This is a slow process but only process IMO.

If you wanna fight 'em keeping fighting. We have been fighting 'em for past 12 years keep fighting. Foreign investors are turning away from Pakistan, Karachi the hub of our economy gets shutdown every other day, no cricket team want to visit Pakistan, I can go on and on. This is a boom time for Asian economy, every country in this region is going up but we are on a consistent decline. Let's keep destroying ourselves.

"Humnay cricket bhee kheli..."


Nawaz Sharif was a right-hand batsman who made a duck in his only appearance for Railways against PIA in 1973-74. He later served two terms as Pakistan's prime minister, firstly between November 1990 and July 1993 and then from February 1997 to October 1999 when he was ousted by a coup led by General Pervez Musharraf.

Love how this whole thread has turned into a collection of ads, slogans, pics, videos, attack posters, etc. from PTI. While the real elections is being fought in the streets and most of it has nothing to do with the material in this thread.

Rural Pakistan which will determine the elections, where party affiliations don't matter, where dharra and thana-kachery culture exists, where key to winning an election is to get the support of the dominant biradri in that area, where caste plays a great role and candidates change parties more frequently than Taylor Swift changes boyfriends, it really makes one wonder what kind of bubble our city mostly expat folks live in, whose only access to electoral process is social media, which is obviously dominated by PTI.

In any case, would love to see some real on the grounds insight from posters actually there in Pakistan (who don't spend all day in front of their computers) rather than expats whose favorite hobby has become embedding videos and pics from PTI's official and unofficial fan club websites.

Apart from the bait at the ex pat community, whose funding of the political process is key to the campaigning i agree with you
The pti is running a populist campaign very similar to obama who unlike ik did head one of the major political parties and his social media campaign worked wonders in the country where social media originates from. He lost out more rural areas like texas, alabama and kentucky to romney.

Commentators are comparing the pti in this election with the start of the ppp who began initially as a socialist movement akin to the pti, but who actively campaigned for the end of feudalism and the redistribution of land and whose supporters, the farmers and peasants actually fought on the streets against tyranny rather than online.

Saad sahib,

With elections literally a couple of weeks away people are allowed to get emotional. Also, you are in no position to judge people based on their location. There is a good chance that some people living outside Pakistan may have more knowledge of Pakistani politics than an average Pakistani living in Pakistan. Having said that i would also like to see more discussion on some of the important issues such as health care and education.

Come on dude, lighten up. With you, its simple the case of seeing glass half empty instead of glass half full, and it getting quite tedious.

Honestly, you cannot underestimate the influence of overseas Pakistanis on this elections. The historically high over voters turn in the urban areas , in this elections, would massively owe to the political activism of the expats. No exaggeration. People are literally calling their friends and families back home telling the to vote. Turn on any news channel, and the host is also pleading the urban areas' folks to cast their vote because their fate is majorly decided by the baradari traditions of the rural areas. You can express as much pessimism as you want but the results of this election will be determined by the urban voters!

Imran Khan is at least holding 4-5 successful jalsa each day in small rural districts. Do you have anything positive to say about that?

Pakistan's Election 2013 (just like Obama's campaign) belongs to the Youth so one mustn't act so surprised and heartbroken to see extensive use of social media. In fact, who in this day and age would underestimate the impact of social media? Just ask the mastermind of Obama campaign what impact it made to Obama's chances of success.

No, a lot of these (cartoons, videos, photoshop pics, etc.) are just your typical PTI blogosphere paraphernalia. My point was that instead of posting superfluous material which adds nothing to the purpose of this thread other than self boasting one upmanship, it might serve the topic better if we talked about the real issues at hand and maybe let the posters on ground explain what's really happening rather than PTI Internet warriors flooding the thread with unnecessary stuff. Of course they can do that if thats their perogative but its not as if some other parties supporters are posting similar stuff so its some kind of battle of who has the better ad or who has the funnier photoshop pics. It's a one way street with no purpose but to regurgitate stuff found on other sites to somehow make oneself feel that they are contributing to this campaign in some way when in reality they are just making a fool of themselves.

Overseas Pakistanis impact on this elections is simply going to be in terms of money. Nothing more. But again, this complex that expats have about their importance and their voice is truly amazing. First, they display a deep disdain for the natives and their choices and then feel superior enough to somehow be a big factor in the whole thing when they don't even know what's the situation on the ground other than what they hear from our deeply biased and superficial print and electronic media.

Also, IK can do 20 jalsas a day, the elections will not be determined by who does more jalsas in a day. Why do you think PPP is not doing any jalsas. Have they accepted defeat or they don't have money to arrange some people to stand in front of a stage and do some sloganeering. It's because it does not really matter. Rural vote in Pakistan is determined at biradri level. It's through internal wheeling and dealings and patronage based politics, where party affiliations don't even matter. What's the use of wasting time and resources in such frivolous things when the money is somewhere else.

Lastly, to compare US presidential elections where its a contest between two people on a national level and that also in a developed western society to that of a parliamentary style election in a poor developing country is hilarious, something which only an expat is capable of doing.

You have your own deeply biased and superficial views about the overseas Pakistanis and frankly I don't see much difference between you and the people you constantly mock. If they are frustrated with all the ills of Pakistani then you are incurably hopeless your own country's future (you've admitted it yourself on various occasions). Perhaps instead getting too carried with the things you see on the internet, you need to keep to up to date with current political climate of Pakistan. This is not 80s and only an expat who has zero knowledge about the ground realities in Pakistan is capable of saying that social media and active campaigning in rural areas, and politicisation of the urban population will have no impact on the elections.

Yes PPP has accepted defeat and in fact it's signed its own death warrant through its own five year rule. The reason why the party is not campaigning because it no longer has the ground to appeal to the masses. The party is totally devoid of leadership, vision and the motivation. Of course it still has its usual regional, rural votes intact but so does every party in Pakistan. But at the end of the day, its the party who appeals to the masses that wins the ultimate battle.

And no, no one is comparing US Presidential style system with Pakistan premature Parliamentary democracy. The point was about the role and the impact of social media on election campaign which was as surprising and influential in raising the level of interest, and awareness in a developed country as it is an undeveloped country like Pakistan.

Why do some people think that instead of first ever free Elections campaign that's taking place after completion of an democratically elected government, there is some kind of revolution taking place in Pakistan? Therefore, every fabric, every section and fraction of the country must be shaken and tuned upside down within a day?

Honestly so much pessimism, bitterness and biased amongst certain expats regarding the elections in Pakistan, finding faults and flaws in everything. I mean what do they think God will send Saints or angels to find a quick fix to their problems or they the people themselves will have to rise and make a start somewhere?

I'm sure if Pakistanis living in Pakistan start following the UK politics as closely and obsessively as some of the British Paks do, they will certainly end up having more knowledge and backed up opinions than the local folks I work with.
