    Manzoor Ali Shah,

    @ ” Democracy seems to work well in NWFP ”

    ‘ Pind wassaya nei, tay uchakay pelon tayyar ”

    In “four ” days the democracy seems to work, world
    record for “Pittay howay Mohray NAP, now ANP.

    Exaggerating too much , yes, in case the maulevis of
    JUI Fazzz allows only, without whom ANP are not even
    allowed to sneez !!

    Muhammad Uzair Sukhera: Exactly.

    Only the JUI-F ran. Jamaat-e-Islami was key to their success last time, as well as nearly all the other constituent MMA parties getting out the vote.

    They say there was a 40% turnout, but that’s likely even lower in NWFP and Balochistan, especially the former.

    Plus the fact of militant violence, and so many people sympathizing AGAINST the government suggests many would have abstained out of protest for that reason alone.

    People don’t care about religious vs. “progressive”, it’s all the same to them as long as they get results. MMA needed to have looked after their provinces like PML-N did for Punjab. Everyone there is gonna love Nawaz for life, despite how he may be viewed in the rest of the country.

  4. Muhammad Uzair Sukhera says:

    Terming this as a win of progressive forces or else as defeat of fundamentalists is far fetched. The MMA did not take part in these elections so practically the verdict is neutral they did not win nor lose.
    What we all need to focus is the solution of problems and not the peripheral issues like fundamentalists vs progressives etc. If ANP does not keep regard of the sensitive religious issues they will have to bear a heavy price, however, i hope that the coalition government understands that its ‘together we live or die’ situation for the country now!
