Seeing democracy through... By Sanaullah
23 October, 2012
Decades of adventurism in democracy have seen this country go from bad to worse. In light of the recent shenanigans by anti-democratic elements, it is the duty of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to preserve and protect the prime aim of transparent general elections.
It is really hoped that the five-year strategic plan of the ECP, under the guidance of Fakhruddin G Ibrahim, will render honest results in the upcoming general elections. Our current prism of problems demands that the democratic process continue so that the main issues in society are resolved. We must defend the culture of transparent general elections.
There is only one critical litmus test: it is a national challenge for both the democratic government and the ECP to make sure that there are no holdups in ensuring free and fair elections.
