KARACHI: This is with reference to Sami Shah’s article of February 16, titled “Viva la what?” This notion of voting for Imran Khan just because one can’t think of anybody else is excruciatingly preposterous.
Democracy isn’t just about a vote. It’s about electing someone who can better serve his or her constituents needs. This can be done if the voting public closely scrutinises the actions and statements of politicians. For example, the fact that a PTI leader attended and spoke at a recent rally organised by extremists elements is something that needs to be addressed.
