ISLAMABAD: Despite stirring a political storm in the country, the rise of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has not been able to dislodge Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) from its front runner position in the numerically important Punjab province.
According to a survey conducted by Gallup Pakistan and PILDAT the PML-N tops the list on voting intention score in Punjab, followed by the PTI and the PPP respectively. The February 2013 political forecast is based on a nationwide poll of approximately 9660 voters in 300 villages and urban localities.
The voting intention score of PML-N stands at 63% in North and Central Punjab, 69% in Western Punjab and 49% in Southern Punjab, shows the survey. According to the consolidated findings of two nationwide polls on voting intentions, conducted by IRI and Gallup Pakistan respectively during past three months, the front runner in Pakistan’s elections scheduled in mid 2013 is the PML-N.
The PTI, however, is making deep inroads in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa where it has surpassed every other player by a 30 percent score.
