Former Indian Diplomat: Pakistan Elections Lacking Fairness and Freedom

Former Indian diplomat KP Fabian has expressed skepticism about the fairness and freedom of the upcoming elections in Pakistan. Fabian contends that, regardless of who becomes prime minister, the real power lies with the country’s army chief, who is not standing for election. He attributes Pakistan’s political, economic, and social disarray to the impact of terrorism. Fabian highlights the arrest of opposition leader Imran Khan and his wife, suggesting that the justice system in Pakistan has eroded.

Imran Khan’s Arrest Raises Concerns About Political Pressure

Imran Khan’s incarceration has drawn attention to potential political pressure, with Fabian asserting that Khan had the right to inform the people about external influence on a confidence motion. However, the former Indian diplomat believes that the charges against Khan lack credibility. This viewpoint emphasizes the challenging political landscape in Pakistan and raises questions about the transparency of the electoral process.

Ajay Bisaria’s Prediction: Most Predictable and Rigged Elections

Former Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria echoes concerns about the predictability and rigging of the general elections. Bisaria points to widespread expectations within Pakistan that the army is involved in pre-election and potential post-election engineering to shape the government as per its preferences. The anticipation of a selection favoring Nawaz Sharif and the PML-N party further underscores the perceived lack of independence in the electoral outcomes.

As more than 17,000 candidates participate in the elections, the political landscape remains highly contested. The dual process of electing candidates to the Pakistan National Assembly and provincial assemblies adds complexity to the electoral dynamics, intensifying scrutiny on the integrity and fairness of Pakistan’s democratic exercise.
