Early general elections would be disastrous for Pakistan

Monitoring Desk: Early general elections would be disastrous for Pakistan which is already on the verge of political, economic, and social collapse, believe social scientists.

In an article published in the English daily Pakistan Today the titled “Bringing the moon to earth for Greek Prince”, author Agha Iqrar Haroon writes that a multiparty government must complete the tenure of this assembly because any early elections would further increase the social, economic, and political polarization that has been injected by former Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The writer maintains that since Imran Khan has been and is still a blue-eyed boy of many therefore fulfilling his desire for early general elections is the foremost duty of those who pampered him for years so early elections would be another pre-election engineering as he is pulling crowds.

Writer believes:

“Chattering about early general elections is consolidating the demands of former prime minister Imran Khan who looks still like the most fortunate person in the history of Pakistan because whatever he says— angels come on earth to follow his instructions.

There is a strong group within Pakistan that actually dislike if not hates the parliamentarian system and the 1973 constitution. Having an exceptional power of maneuverability, a bible in the hand of political tricks, and a cyclostyled sheet of allegations of being corrupt and economic meltdown in their hands against politicians, this group does not sleep ever. The political activism of non-political groups we have already seen during the last tenure of PPP and PMLN rule is one of the ingredients of the recipe to throw the political governments out of the operations. Soon political parties will feel fatigued and would be ready for early elections though the parliamentary committee of the multiparty government had decided to stay in power till the expiry of the current tenure of the National Assembly which would end in August 2023.

Political parties do not feel a threat from public meetings former Prime Minister Imran Khan is holding but the establishment looks erratic because it is the prime target of his indecent, unfounded, and self-assumed allegations and he wants to come into power at any cost to deploy next Chief of Pakistan Army that is due in November but the announcement would be around September or so. I believe Imran Khan who said that families of military men would march with him to Islamabad is still pampered and protected by many who crafted him as the cleanest man, uncorrupted, anti-parliament, anti-constitution, and ready to available statesman—- an investment of over 11 years must not go to drain indeed.

I personally believe that a multiparty government must complete the tenure of this assembly while sitting in power because any early elections would further increase the social, economic, and political polarization that has been injected by former Prime Minister Imran Khan. However, I have some serious fears. Since Imran Khan has been and is still a blue-eyed boy of many therefore fulfilling his desires is the foremost duty of those who pampered him for years so early elections would be another pre-election engineering as he is pulling crowds. We know this is not sustainable for an extended period”.
