Pakistan Muslim League is back in power -- What Next?

By Dr. Abdul Ruff

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who expanded his illegal wealth in his previous reign declared victory for his Pakistani Muslim League party in the 11th May parliamentary elections even while votes were still being counted. Early results indicated that Sharif will likely return to the job he held twice in the 1990s. But no party is expected to win a majority of seats in parliament, meaning Sharif would have to form a coalition government.

This time youngsters became active and many extended support to Imran Khan’s PTI. The contest was close between PML-N and PTI in Punjab. Urban Sindh extended support to MQM and PPP remained docile in urban as well as rural areas. Surprisingly, Bilawal, Chairman PPP (son of President Zardari and Benazir Bhutto) preferred to remain in door due to life threats. ANP came under attack in Sindh as well as Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. In Balochistan, nationalist parties are likely to get reasonable number of seats. Religious parties formed an alliance but JI and JUI-F fielded their own candidates.

A point worth mentioning is that, due to strong poll campaign, turnout was higher as compared to previous elections, also may be people have realized that they are being cheated by the leaders and if they wish to bring a change in Pakistan they have to cast their vote.

MQM, JI and some other religious parties have lodges complaint of rigging and are demanding re-election. So, there is the question of the polling being fair, free and transparent. However, some observers are of the view that any attempt to mar credibility of the polling held or non-acceptance of the results could create unrest in the country, an objective enemies of Pakistan are trying to achieve. They initially threatened people to stay away from this non-Shariah compliant system but their argument carried no weight as they declared not to stop, religious parties, PML-N, JI and PTI from participating in the polls.

Sharif Brothers and their dynasty contested on various seats. Most of the political commentators were hinting towards ‘hung parliament’ in which no party will get majority and the outcome could be another ‘coalition’ government. A point to watch is has the youth made any difference?

The Sharif regime is tasked now with leading a country suffering from attacks from NATO terror syndicates occupying Pakistan, and political corruption severe power shortages, a struggling economy,.

In his earlier stint as premier of Pakistan he let all capitalists thrive in Pakistan by special tax rebates and he himself was a beneficiary of all state patronage of illegal wealth making.

Will Sharif and other capitalist associates now resume the loot of the nation's resources and ignore the aspirations of hapless Muslims?

Or will they get over the US puppetry hang over and rebuild the nation along Islamic way?

More importantly, will the new regime kick the NATO terror gangs out of Pakistan soil
and let Pakistanis live in peace as before the Bush rogues and Pentagon criminal infrastructure entered Islamizing Pakistan by using readymade Sept-11 hoax, Osama gimmicks and Afghan nukes?

So long as NATO terror gangs are allowed to stay on in Pakistan, killing Muslims in Afghanistan-Pakistan by calling them as terrorists and insurgents, there is no question of peace, progress and stability in Pakistan.

More and more Muslims would only be slaughtered by the enemy of Islam -- both others and Muslims themselves as paid agents of CIA & co.

Sharif must ask Obama and associates to stop killing Muslims in Pakistan and Afghanistan and elsewhere through their agents. Pakistan must use its UNSC membership for this job.

Pakistan must now fix its policy priorities in favor of Islamic Pakistan and Muslims -- after all Shari’a is not a mere slogan.
