Islamabad: Voting for the general elections in Pakistan will begin on Thursday morning. All preparations for this have been completed. However, a day before voting, a massive bomb blast in Pakistan’s Balochistan province has created panic among the people. About 28 people have died in this blast. In such a situation, conducting elections peacefully is a tough challenge for Pakistan Police, Army and Election Commission. Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan is in jail. He was disqualified by the court from contesting the elections. His party’s election symbol bat was also snatched away. In such a situation, Imran Khan is already considered out of the fight. In such circumstances, there is a lot of speculation about who will be the new Prime Minister of Pakistan.
However, even before the general elections of Pakistan, indications have started emerging as to who is going to become the new Prime Minister of Pakistan? It is believed that former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is leading in the race. The reason for this is also that Nawaz has the support of Pakistani Army. In such a situation, his victory is considered certain. Nawaz has returned to Pakistan after being exiled from Pakistan for the last 4 years. After this, all the important cases imposed on him one by one ended before the elections. Nawaz Sharif held politicians responsible for Pakistan’s poor economy and poor condition. Besides, he has also shown the dream of getting Pakistan out of these difficulties after coming to power. In such a situation, it is believed that Nawaz Sharif can become the new Prime Minister of Pakistan.
Dozens of deaths in bomb blast before elections
Incidents of violence also took place on Wednesday, on the eve of the general elections. At least 28 people were killed and 42 others injured in twin bomb blasts targeting election offices in Balochistan province. With former Prime Minister Imran Khan in jail, Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) may emerge as the largest party in the elections. Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate is contesting the elections as an independent after the Supreme Court upheld the Election Commission’s decision to strip his party of its election symbol cricket ‘bat’. Sharif, 74, will be eyeing a record fourth term as prime minister in Thursday’s elections.
