For the first time in 66 years of Pakistan’s independence, a civilian government led by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), has completed a full fixed five-year term in office without facing any military intervention or other type of interruption. In a country where military forces have a history of getting involved through coups or influencing presidents to dissolve parliaments, the PPP made no effort to extend its mandate extra legally.
Today Pakistan is known as a country which has become a hub of Islamic militants. This factor has badly hit Pakistan’s social and economic life from every perspective. The world has a vital stake in who wins these elections and how they proceed to govern. What should we expect from newly elected government in Pakistan?
