KARACHI: 

As political campaigns heat up ahead of the upcoming general elections, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) star seems to be on the rise. According to a survey conducted by the International Republican Institute (IRI), the main opposition party’s popularity has increased both on the national and provincial level.

The recently released survey was conducted in November last year on a sample of 4,997 people. The sample was proportioned according to country’s demographics, in terms of age, gender, income, literacy and linguistic background. Participants were interviewed face-to-face.

Among the questions put forth by the interviews, participants were asked which party they would vote for if elections for the National Assembly (NA) were held a week following the interview. Similar questions were posed for each of the country’s provincial assemblies. The data gained was then compared to an earlier survey conducted between July and August last year to identify popularity trends.

According to the report, 32% of the respondents said they would vote for PML-N in the NA elections, compared to 28% in July-August 2012. In contrast, the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) popularity remained stable at 14%. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), which appeared the most popular party at the national level following PML-N, saw a decrease in support from 24% in July-August 2012 to 18% in November 2012.

Similarly, PML-N remained the most popular party in Punjab according to the survey with 49% support – a 6% increase compared to the previous survey. In comparison, PTI, which remains the  second most popular party in the province with 19% support, registered an 8% decrease in popularity.

While the IRI report revealed PML-N to be the next-to-least popular party in Sindh, it showed the main opposition party’s support in the province rose to 8% in November 2012 from 6% in July-August 2012. Although the ruling PPP still remained the most popular party in the province with 32% support, its popularity declined by 7% from 39% in July-August 2012. Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), meanwhile, registered itself as the second most popular party in Sindh with 16% support, a 5% increase from its standing in previous survey.

PML-N’s popularity increased by 3% in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) to an overall 12%. PTI, however, remained the most popular party in the province with 32% support – a 2% increase from its support in July-August 2012.

In Balochistan, PML-N’s popularity increased by 5% to an overall 13%. Meanwhile, PTI lost its spot as the most popular party in the restive province to PPP due to 9% decrease in popularity. Concurrently, the ruling party registered a staggering 13% increase in popularity in Balochistan.

New province in southern Punjab

The IRI report revealed 41% of the respondents ‘strongly opposed’ to the creation of a new province in southern Punjab. In comparison, 21% of the respondents ‘strongly supported’ the creation of the province while 14% ‘somewhat supported’ the move.

Meanwhile, a majority of the respondents identified inflation as the most pressing issue facing Pakistan. According to the report, 32% of the survey participants picked inflation in response to the question. In contrast, 20% selected unemployment, 13% selected electricity and water, 10% selected terrorism, 7% selected corruption and only 5% selected poverty as the most pressing issue faced by the country.

Asked to rate the country’s institutions favourably, 40% of the respondents expressed a positive response to the NA. Around 37% rated the opposition favourably while 26% rated the incumbent government favourably.

In response to a question regarding their likelihood of voting in the upcoming elections, 75% of the respondents said they would definitely participate in the polls.

Karachi is at mercy of militant wings, dacoits are roaming in rural Sindh. They should revisit their policies and improve their performance otherwise sooner or later, their boat will sink. Secondly congrats to PMLN for gaining grounds in Sindh. Sindhi Nationalists, PMLF, and PMLN are emerging as new powerful factors in upcoming elections in Sindh.

Of the remaining 36%, not all are going to against past and present governments. So, I guess the results of survey are quite realistic.

    I think if PML – N wins the next election then they MUST change the way of governance which they used in past (2 times tested and failed). PTI may not win this time but for sure next time i.e. after another 5 years. The most important thing is that PPP must not win this time, even in sindh because PPP promoted corruption and nothing else. PPP means Pee on Peoples Party. PTI will surely win considerably but in cities only. Interior punjab, a ground of feudal politics, will be in favour of PML-N mainly. Interior sindh will be a bit divided this time some in facor of PML-F and some to nationalist and PPP. A lot will also depend on the probable political alliance of PTI,JI and other parties, if that happens, could make the difference. ANP, MQM, PML-Q were only busy in getting price of their support to PPP government throughout the last 5 years. I honesty doubt the capabilities of political leadership of Pakistan who have always failed to deliver. And the fool/poor people of Pakistan who have always voted to PPP and PML. Pakistanis don’t think at all that the leadership of these parties is made up of feudals, industrialists and corrupts. The fate of Pakistanis is again going in the hands of those who have never given any good to the people but deprived them of their peace, econmic stability and basics of life. Shame on those who support the political leaders having feudal, indutrialist background. Shame on those who support those politicians who were on sale through ISI etc. PTI has not been tested yet so people should give them a chance to prove. If WE vote to PML-N and PPP again then we will suffer even stronger than last 5 years. I bet you.

    We need to learn that ‘majority is right’ OR ‘majority is authority’ is a slogan used to deviate people from the truth and reality. We must acknowledge that in our society certain things are quite common such as firendship b/w boy and girl, back biting, drinking and other various sins which majority of the people living in our society do on daily basis. What I am trying to say that as a nation we have no issue in doing several wrong things and in defence we say that everybody does it. Because everybody does does not mean that it is justified. Similarly there is a possibility that people are supportng PML-N but it does not mean that it is RIGHT.
    Pakistanis have forgotten the meaning of right and wrong, difference fake and real, and on the similar lines we have forgotten the poor performances of PML-N and PPP. Our memory is very short. We are suffering from a disease called ‘short term memory loss’. We are still supporting them (PPP and PML-N) as we are doing several sins as part of our routine life. We as nation have aleady lost our character and ethics and the evidence of the same is that Mr. Zardari is our president. Our vision is short term and views are always biased, approach to politics is immature, understanding of the regional, international politics is unclear, lack of knowledge of economics. We talk about accountability of politicians but never do our own. In this election if we choose the same people (which we are likely to do so) then results will be severe for us.Recommend

However if people do vote for Nawaz and his hawks, they will almost immediately be disappointed within a few months when the country carries on declining in all respects

    @Umair:
    PTI is not in the government and punjab govt is using all govt resources to run party campaign. they are just bribing people to get their votes. whole province revenue is down from last 5 years and still it is decling. Have they made any long term planning for next 10-20 years? What do you expect from PTI to do when they are not in power? Is Punjab crime free? are they all paying thier texas? are business flourishing in punjab? tell me one good thing about punjab govt….

    PML(N) is performing what??
    27km road of lahore has destroyed education and health budget of whole punjab.
    Law n order situation is worse than PML(Q)’s CM ship.
    People are not going to accept fake surveys and fake statements of PML(N)
