I predict, if PMLQ doesn't make a seat adjustment with PTI, a lot of swing vote will go to PTI because they are the only party in Punjab, apart from PMLN, that have the chance of forming a government in the Center. PMLQ was decimated in 2013. Tough to recover from that.
    True they need to be in government to survive as a party and there are more chances of them standing with PTI or PPP than sitting with PMLN. Also i would love to see their leader Ajmal Wazir from FATA in PTI. He is a clean guy and a fresh face

According to him, about 60% Mianwali speaks Punjabi, with the rest divided between Pashto and Seraiki.

    Maybe a bit of influence with Kashmiri due to proximity... Its interesting how languages merge into each other over time due to proximity.... like Seraiki has plenty of Sindhi influence since it is spoken by people living right next to Sindh.

    Not that much, lol. If you can understand 80-90% of the Majhi dialect then you can easily understand at least 60% of one of the dialects spoken in the Potohar region. However, there is an increasing influence of Kashmir/Dogri the further up the Potohar you go, but in the area of Jehlum, it should be that unintelligible.

    True and it's also bordered with Lucky Merwat and KP areas. Interestingly Mianwali is heavily influenced by Pathan culture too. Majority of Mianwali are Niazi and Niazis are Pathan by blood and look it's just that their language changed when their ancestors moved to this area from Pathan areas centuries ago. Even the area names in Mianwali are influenced by Pashto. Esah Khael, Musa Khael, Paai Khael, Shadi Khael, Daud Khael etc are all tehsils and areas of Mianwali and you will find similar names in FATA and KP like Dera Adam Khael

    Lala is a great man but i don't think he can win a NA/PA seat. At most he will win a UC because i know nature of people their they love to invite Singers on their Weddings but they will never vote for them. Lala will lose from his own Isakhel constituency because he is a self made man without any influential family background. To win in Mianwali you need to have the backing of tribes like Shadi Khael, Rokhris or the backing of Nawab of Kaala Bagh family.

    Imran Khan won from NA-71 with 132k votes because he is a national leader and is from a well known family of Mianwali. Shadi Khel ended up losing and gained 72k votes but guess what when IK resigned from that seat to retain Rwp seat same Shadi Khael won the seat with 95k votes and PTI candidate ended up losing with 76k votes. A difference of 55k+ votes within a period of 1 month! (some people also showed their anger because they felt insulted that Imran resigned from home constituency to retain Rawalpindi seat).

    Imran on the hand thought Peshawar and Mianwali seats will be easy to win again for any PTI candidate so he resigned from both and PTI lost both in by elections.

    I might offend a few Punjabis here but according to my observation, the Punjabi spoken in areas of Chakwal and Jehlum is the most purest and simplest form of Punjabi in Pakistan.

    Will he compete from NA 64 or NA 65 ?

    NA-64 (old NA-60). The interesting point about this constituency is the high number of votes and to give you an idea.

    2013: Winner 129k, Runner up 100k, Number 3rd 47k

    2008: Winner 125k, Runner up 91k

    2002: Winner 72k, Runner up 70k, Number 3rd 41k

    Yes I remember if I am not wrong that Ayaz Ameer got elected from chakwal with highest number of votes ever in a single halqa. By the way my halqa is NA 65 this time. What are PTIs chances there ?

    Yea Ayaz Amir won there with 125k back in 2008 and also lost there by only a margin of 2k back in 2002. PTI is pretty weak in NA-65 but i heard Tammans are expected to join PTI that can turn the table there.

    I'm a little annoyed that a working day went by and not one ghairat-mand Pakistani put petition in SC to charge Nawaz with treason for his anti-Pakistan statements. Heck nothing even came of the NSC meeting.

    Not seen much of Azam and Abrar on mainstream channels but others some on very popular shows. Often sawal gundum aur jawab chana detay hein. They have unrelated planted answers to every question. Naeem specifically comes in capital talk which is one of the most watched shows, thankfully he is no more PTI spokesperson.

    There are few who can handle media. Fawad, Ali Muhammad Khan, Murad Saeed, SMQ, Asad Umar, Shafqat Mahmood, Arif Alvi to name a few. That's plenty of them.
    Mid level People like Atif Khan, Shahram are better than these Naeems types.

    Some of them in @Mian list need to be banned on TV.

    True naeems types should be banned from appearing on TV. And it's time PTI start using the good imported voices from PPP like Nadeem Afzal Chan and Noor Alam Khan. Not sure why fresh faces like Hammad Azhar, Waleed Iqbal and Sikandar Bhadera are not being tried.

    From what i heard Naeem and Mazari always play the bridge role between Geo and PTI whenever there are tensions and there is a reason both of them show up on Capital talk more than others. Shehryar Afridi is a also a friend of Talat and he used to be a regular guest in his show.

    So, the worst comes on Geo where the atmosphere is least friendly towards PTI , whereas its audience needs some convincing to support PTI.

    So I guess its over for PML-N.

    What NS said in the Cyril interview cannot be called anything other than political suicide. Feel bad for Shehbaz, must be dreaming of finally becoming PM after big bro is out of the way, but NS manages to screw his chances as well. He reminds me of a pampered child who throws the candy on the ground when his parents ask him to share it with his little bother. Agar meri nahi tu kisi ki nahi.

    Maybe he never wanted SS to become PM. Maybe this is just a shrewd strategy to let this election go to PTI, get SS sidelined in the next 5 years and launch Maryam as the leader of the party. After all, these kinds of palace intrigues are common in the Saudi palace, something NS must be very fimiliar with.

    Thank you!
    I can tell you really approximately, as the new constituencies do not follow the same borders as the old ones. I will do all of them just for the sake of completion/so everyone can see.

    NA-236 Malir = Old NA-258 (rural part)
    NA-237 Malir = Old NA-257 (south half)
    NA-238 Malir = Old NA-258 (south part adjacent to Landhi)
    NA-239 Korangi = Old NA-256
    NA-240 Korangi = Old NA-255
    NA-241 Korangi = Old NA-254
    NA-242 Karachi East = Old NA-253 and NA-257 (north halves)
    NA-243 Karachi East = Old NA-253 (south half) and NA-252 (north part)
    NA-244 Karachi East = Old NA-251 and NA-252 (south part)
    NA-245 Karachi East = Old NA-252 (west half)
    NA-246 Karachi South = Old NA-248 and NA-249
    NA-247 Karachi South = Old NA-250

    Totally agree, Naeem ul Haq just totally loses it.

    Had huge expectations from Shibli Faraz and Waleed Iqbal but both aren't good speakers despite being highly educated and bright people.

    Sheharyar Afridi is not too bad but way too emotional.

    Fayaz Chohan is good for likes of Abid Sher Ali, Hanif Abbasi types but shouldn't represent PTI at high level.

    From what i heard, Usman Basra although bit young and emotional but presents solid arguments and is a lawyer so that also helps.

    Sardar Ghulam Abbas will be a great addition, he has used a good excuse to leave PMLN and this issue will also affect PMLN votebank in Pothohar area in particular. I can see PMLN suffering similar way they will in South Punjab. Nawaz is trying his best to create troubles for brother Shahbaz so Maryam can take over with sympathy from around the world.

    But he was with PTI back in 2011-12, then ditched the party over some issues with IK. I don't think he will be coming back.

    I am pretty sure he wanted assurance of ticket but Imran Khan was still in is idealist phase and told him that elected officials will decide who gets the ticket so he left, i think Sikandar Bosan also left for the same reason and so did many other strong candidates.

    Thank you! I have tallied this with the 2002 and 2018 delimitations/maps and your tabulation is very accurate. Apart from NA-246. While old NA-248 is clearly in it but the whole of NA-249 isn't. NA-249's major chunk of Saddar division has shifted to NA-247 (former NA-250). While the Garden subdivision is divided between both NA-247 and NA-246. I think this will impact Arif Alvi's chances of winning NA-247 because NA-249 had been one of the safest seats for MQM and Farooq Sattar has been winning from it from quite some time.

    Also, can you please elaborate on new NA-252's areas.

    Maybe. Thankfully he is out of it now.

    When will PTI finalize the issuance of tickets? What will happen if electables joined after tickets have been issued?

    I briefed about the process in my previous post. There are half a dozen (or much more) applicants for every constituency.

    Preliminary interviews have started that will shortlist it to 2 candidates, from every constituency, and those two will then present their profile and plan to Final committee including Ik and then IK announce Final List.

    I think Aleem Khan and Shoaib Siddiqui are doing interviews of candidates from central Punjab. Saw him doing interview of Abrar the other day. Kayani will probably interview candidates from North Punjab and i gues Khakwani will be the one doing interviews for South? SMQ, Ch Sarwar, Tareen and IK will finalize in the end

    Ramzan time and may be it's a perception that Ramzan will help curtail whatsoever little Chaos MNS and his allies intend to after NAB verdict, hence the joinings. Parting ways arter verdict will not give them benefit of doubt in claiming Holiness.

    Ticket allocation is key point. Electables are good for numbers but a potential forward block as well if in high proportion. If elected Electables constitute more than 15% of total Seats won by PTI, it's going to be a big headache.

    I think PTI will accept electables as of now (their number making upto 30% ticket holders) and if PTI gets to form Federal Govt, in future these electables will be disqualified through NAB cases or bla bla. PTI can then bring in like minded sincere candidates. Sacking 20 MPAs is enough for an example to make me believe that PTI will not tolerate rubbish. Will be a masterstroke to win elections through help from Electables and disqualify them 18 months afterward. By-elections are merely a formality.

    This is exactly what I am thinking. But the point is, if we, as amateurs in the politics of the country are having such thoughts, some unscrupulous electables might be having them too. A powerful incentive for them to not jump ship.

    That would be an idealist point of view. In a country like Pakistan, with biradrisim, and jahalat along with mass propaganda being spread by Noon league in their jalsas, it won't happen.

    Currently NS is playing the victim card and playing it well. NS's end game is not about sidelining Shahbaz and his side of the family, but rather to get so much mandate that they, in connivance with PPP, are in the position to repeal 62.1.f after the 2018 elections and maintain the status quo. If PTI comes to power, it will be the end of Noon league and they know it. To stop that from happening, even if they have to make a coalition with PPP post-elections, they will do so in a heartbeat.

    But PTI is gobbling up all the lotas and establishment stooges faster than the PML-N propaganda machines can work overtime so in the end, I am not sure how much of that sympathy will get to work its magic.

    All I am saying is that don't write off PMLN just yet. They have perfected the Punjabi brand of politics in over three decades of Punjab-centric machinations. If they can't win fair, they will fight unfair. And an unfair fight favors PMLN heavily as was witnessed in widespread malpractices in 2013.

    So, things might have changed on the surface, but underneath not much is different from 11 May 2013.

    interesting point of view and could be valid but as mentioned above do not count them out yet..this is part of their strategy..roana dhoana and playing the victim..but this may have backfired badly on them. The MP's themselves may not want to associate themselves with NS now.

    What will happen to the people who jump ship after tickets have been allocated.... hasn't PTI already started the process of identifying the people who will get tickets?

    From what's being said on Twitter, PTI will be in a position to sweep the 3 seats of Jhang district and if Sheikh Waqas comes in, PMLN won't even have an outside chance:
    "JKT strikes gold in Jhang. Sitting MNAs, Nazir Sultan (NA 90) & Ghulam Bibi Bharwana (NA 88), Sitting MPA, Azam Chela (PP 82), X-MPAs, Ghulam Ahmad Gadi (PP 81), Sheikh Yaqub (PP 78), Mehr Nawaz Bharwana (PP 76), Aslam Bharwana & Mian Asif Kathia (PP 80) will join PTI tomorrow IA"

I don't know what will happen if IK also disappoints like his predecessors, there is no other leader on the horizon. Then grandchildren of the House of Sharif or Bhutto clan will take turns doing their worst to the country.

    True they should get Sheikh Waqas family on board too they are very strong if i am not wrong one of his brother is also a sitting/ex mpa and another brother or father is a chairman in LG.

    It will be difficult but he needs to reform institutions with a passion because people are used to fancy projects but not institutional reforms and if they dont see visible change they will lose faith hope. The one thing that is for sure, he will be one of the few leaders in our history that will not be thinking about commissions when he signs contracts.

    Things are not that easy. As @Mian points out, there is Reham's upcoming book strategically placed to publish right before the elections. Furthermore, Nawaz has insinuated to release info about the 2014 dharna. If you remember, Mushahidullah was fired from his job after he gave an interview to a UK-based paper that the government has 'recordings' of army generals who contacted IK/Qadri. I am sure IB retains such tapes, which can be released. Finally, if all else fails, they will openly attack Imran Khan's playboy history to pander to the conservatives.

    While I am positive of PTI's chances, there are many obstacles to that. Obstacles that PTI have to overcome with little damage to stand a chance to form a government. If they lapse, a PMLN-PPP coalition post-election is still very much on the cards.

    According to Amir Mateen majority of PMLN’s MPAs and MNAs didn’t even apply for the party ticket and Shahbaz himself is personally begging candidates to apply for ticket.

    This is a nice piece on PTI's campaign in 2013. Just trying to inject some caution into the overwhelming optimism on this thread.

    Rumors are already in market Nawaz is going to release Audio tapes of DG ISI talking to Imran/Qadri. In my personal view Reham personal attacks and cheap shots will do more damage than those tapes. Shahbaz recorded calls with Justice Qayyum and Nawaz attacking SC and taking bribe from ISI and funds from Laden are there for everyone to see but majority of voters dont care about these things in Punjab

    Omar Mateen is a sensationalist. He exaggerates things. I am sure things are not that good for PMLN tickets as can be seen by the extension in application submission deadline. But to say that 70 sitting MNAs and 100-200 MPAs haven't applied for Sher ticket is pure hype - plain and simple.

    Yea a bit esaggerated but i think those numbers includes the one leaving and joining PTI. I think many of PMLN candidates will go independent if NS don't calm down. We all know Punjab politics was never anti establishment and PMLN was never a party of resistance. I heard PMLN as a party is also asking candidates to sign an affidavit that say they will remain loyal to NS (not just party).
