Uttar Pardesh is key factor in India’s Loksabha elections. Total 80 Lok Sabha constituencies in Uttarpradesh and who will win most of them, is also a chance to take the Delhi’s Masnad. Same thing will happen in Pakistan as Pakistan’s Punjab province is the key factor of their upcoming elections.
Total 141 general seats in Punjab province and which party will get the most of them, they will be in the Pakistan’s Masnad. So no doubt is there, that Punjab province is the key factor in the upcoming Pakistan general elections.
Lets’ see the seats of Pakistan General Elections:-
Total seats in Pakistan General Elections-272
Punjab Province- 141
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa- 39
Over 100 political parties are in the fray for 272 seats in the National Assembly, which are filled through a vote. A party needs to win 172 seats to form a government on its own. This election is very much important just because of two reasons. One is Nawaz’s fate and other one is most wanted terrorist Hafiz Saeed’s fate. If Hafiz’s Allah-o-Akbar Tehreek (a political wing of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and a front of Lashkar-e-Taiba) will win the elections then it’s threat to world as terrorists’ team will run the whole country.
Lahore is the capital city of Punjab province. It is not far from the Indian border area. PML-N started as the most popular party in this election and PML-N draws its support from the politically important Punjab province. Party’s fate now lie in hands of Nawaz’s brother Shehbaz Sharif who is the chief Minister of the province. If disaster will not happen then Shehbaz Sharif will be the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Mariyam, the daughter of Nawaz Sharif is also in jail with her father. She is also a candidate in the upcoming elections.
PTI is the main opponent party of PML-N in this elections. The party led by Imran Khan is expected to be the most important player in these elections. Imran Khan is criticised many times for his marriage scandal.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is the strong area of PTI and The party, until recently, was considered the most influential party in Pakistan. The party wields influence in Pakistan’s Sindh province. Bilabal Jardari is the main opponent of former Pak captain Imran Khan in Sindh province.
Now lets see who will win the battle of Pakistan? Former Pak Captain who was already in marriage scandal or a most wanted terrorist?
