    I am apolitical. My only wish is who so ever makes the government, he and his party should give preference in solving the problems of the masses.

    Pakistan is a great country which has been gifted to the Pakistanis by Al-Mighty Allah. Though the legislators take oath that they will remain faithful towards the country, but it has been observed time and again that political leaders once in the office, they are more inclined to fill up their own pockets, instead of solving the problems of the poor masses.

    Pakistan did not came at this verge which we are facing today just in one day. Pakistan has been neglected by the political leaders upto that extent that it has now become a criminal negligence.

    For God sake, think once, if Pakistan will remain, Pakistanis will also remain.

    Instead of showing names of candidates the website of PEC is abuz with political leaders statements. Why is election commission hiding names of candidates of NA and provincial assembly candidates. Does it intend to make alterations and additions if not then why list was not being made public.
