Elections in Chitral: Close quadrangular competition on the cards

23 Jul, 2018

Chitral: As dust settles on the electioneering campaigns culminating in rallies and public meetings, the polling day a mere 48 hours away, is to witness a gruelling competition between the candidates of four major political parties namely the PTI, PMLN, PPP and the MMA. Who will win the competition is any body’s guess but one thing is for sure that all the four parties will bag good amount of votes to be in a neck to neck picture at the winning post.
What is to be seen is whether partner candidates from the same party for both the National and Provincial assembly will get equal (or nearly equal votes) or will we see partner candidates ditching each other on the votes scale.
As politics has become synonymous with cheating for the man in the street and in Chitrali language when someone tries to trick someone else, the later detestfully says “you are trying to play politics with me”.
What every Chitrali can hope and pray that the best person having the most selfless and sincere desire to serve the people wins. .. CN report, 23 Jul 2018

    Candidates all promise to be honest and truthful with the people after getting elected. The first test is the election results. Let us see if candidates have been asking for votes equally for their partner candidates as for themselves. If the results are otherwise, then we cannot expect such candidates to be honest with the people also. Politics should be transparent and crystallized, not a game of cheating and deceit.
