Post-election situation in Pakistan

Although national and provincial elections were held in Pakistan on the 8th, political stability has not been achieved. It is uncertain when and to what extent it will come. Perhaps a government will be formed very soon. The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), led by Nawaz Sharif, and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), led by Bilawal Bhutto, have agreed to the formation of a coalition government after repeated discussions. However, how that will happen is still unclear. According to reports, Nawaz Sharif himself may become the Prime Minister.

The Twelfth National Parliament is set to convene on the upcoming January 30th. The government has been formed, and positions such as Prime Minister, Speaker of Parliament, Cabinet, and Deputy Speaker have been determined in a similar manner. On January 30th, the Speaker and Deputy Speaker will be officially elected. However, the Awami League has already endorsed Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury as the current Speaker and Shamsul Haque Tuku as the Deputy Speaker. There is no opposition on this matter, and there is no possibility of any other candidate. However, a decision on who will be the opposition party has not been made yet. The issue has become complicated due to the complexity of the January 7th election in Bangladesh. The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) did not participate in the election. Instead, Jatiya party has emerged. Their performance did not meet expectations. In a democratic system, the norm is that multiple political parties will participate in the elections.

The latest victim of train arson is the Benapole Express. The incident occurred as the train, carrying passengers from Benapole border, was about to reach Kamalapur Railway Station in Dhaka. Just minutes away from its destination, the train was set on fire at 9:00 pm on Friday. Till Friday night, no formal statement has been given by the fire service or the railway authorities about who is responsible for this incident. But there is no reason to be difficult to understand that those who are active in disrupting the national elections are behind this arson.

How useful are election manifestos in politics

An election manifesto is a critical issue in a democratic regime, although there is no obligation to declare one. A party may or may not declare a manifesto, though it is a custom. This manifesto is a statement of a party's promises, goals, and policies when it forms the government. All major political parties of a country provide their manifesto, i.e., inform the people of their plans. Accordingly, people can decide which party's plan they will support. Initially, it is better to say one thing: no wealthy or impoverished country can ever fully implement the election manifesto. Realistically, it is not possible.
