The two days of elections were electrifying for nation as on two election days the uninterrupted supply of electricity was provided to the nation, many people seem happy that just two day, but they got some time with uninterrupted supply of electricity.
Now elections are long gone and nation is back into the worst of darkness again. The electricity is just seen for 6 to 9 hours a day in cities of Pakistan, don’t even bother asking about remote rural areas. People where were thinking to improvement of things are pushed into worst of darkness. Elected parties still did not came into power yet but the caretakers are doing worst at this time. Country really can feel that it is being run by Zardari, remember Zardari led government did not done any good for country in last five years and people of Pakistan rightly punished Zardari’s Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) by not voting for this party in three of four provinces making PPP the party of just Sindh province.
Now people of Pakistan are experiencing worst of all time load shedding of electricity. Though I had voted for other party but all my hopes now are associated with the winning Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N). This party is soon coming in to the power. I will hope that they will resolve this electricity issue as soon as they come into power. I have what so ever no hopes at all from Mr. Zardari or the care takers.
PML-N will now have to perform to regain the same kind of mandate they got in these elections. I wish them best of luck and wish that they can resolve this problem (along with other issues Pakistanis are facing) as soon as they come in to power. Remember people of Pakistan are more aware then ever now, so please perform. May Allah help people of Pakistan and help them in resolving their problems.

Last few decades have been heavy on Pakistanis as nation. Specially as time passed things gone worse from bad. Things crossed the limit when Zardari led Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) came in to power this last time. Corruption was on its upper limits in last five years, economy was going bad, shortage of sugar and wheat was created, lately Pakistanis have been experiencing the shortage of Natural Gas and Electricity.
Through all these problems Pakistanis as nation hanged on and wanted to bring change through elections. Some violent protests seen but they were nothing as compared to what happened in middle east. While riots were on the peak in middle east like Libya, Pakistanis were waiting for next elections, so they can go and pick new faces in civilized manner.
In last sixty years right from time when Pakistan came into existence last government was the first which complete its given tenure of five years. This last government ran by PPP was not people friendly in any means but still people have dared to give democracy a chance and let them complete their five years so they don’t come with any excuses like before that they were not given time to deliver what they have to.
Meanwhile, the people were also very angry on government due to they does not delivered what they promised so whole environment started to form. People wanted the change and revolution in they country but they wanted this via elections. In this regard one person named Imran Khan came forward, he through his rallies, press conferences and interviews not only made the people realize that change is now required but he also urged more and more people to bring that change via using the vote on elections day because that was the correct way. He targeted the youth and it payed off, Imran Khan, formar cricketer, world cup winner as cricket captain and owner/initiator of charity hospital called Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Center not ready to bring change with the youth of country he believes in. He with his party called Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaf (PTI) is contesting the Pakistan elections 2013 being held on may 13th. PTI brings mostly new faces as candidates, also 35% of them belong to youth, no such thing seen in any party in Pakistan before or even not.
Lately, Pakistan Muslim league Nawaz (PML-N) also tried to step on the bandwagon and they named their efforts as revolution. They must know that they have been in government both provincial as well as federal many times in last few decades, they performed better than PPP but were not succeeded in resolving the core issues of Pakistan also no long term projects were initiated to resolve problems like power shortage.
Now on May 11 the wait of Pakistani nation is over, they need to bring in new faces who are capable of taking country up and running back to developed state. Whoever you want to vote, just do vote, do get out of your homes to elect the people who you believe will do better management of country and will put it back on course of development.

Different sources and surveys are concluding different outcomes of Pakistan elections 2013 but one thing is common in all of them, they are all rating Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI), Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
Also most surveys suggest that PML-N and PTI will secure more seats than PPP, so the real tough fight is going to be between the PTI and PML-N. Supporters of both parties are confident that their party will secure more seats than the other party.
With the entry of PTI in the game this time, analysts are confident that no party is gonna get two third majority, they go forward in believing firmly that none of the parties are gonna secure 50% of seats because of tough fight between two big parties of this election which are PTI and PML-N. Lately both parties appear to have same kind of popularity and expected to get about equal number of seats.
It is also being told that due to this tough fight between PTI and PML-N whichever party is gone come in power it will not make a solo government but they will have to go for collation with other smaller parties to secure fifty percent majority.
Also as Nawaz Sharif the leader of PML-N have already said they are not making the government in collation with any other party, but on other hand Imran khan have already done seat adjustment with Sheikh Rasheeds Party, they are also considering Jamat Islami (JI) as potential for collation. So many are confident that Imran Khan is going to be next prime minister of Pakistan.
This time PTI have convinced more people to vote, specially youth is with Imran Khan, the chairman of PTI. So first time more of educated population and more people in cities are gonna vote.
The final result will come after 11 May 2013, so don’t waste your vote and get out of your home on election day to vote for the individual or party which you think will work for the country better than other.
