ISLAMABAD: Voters – young and old – turned out in a huge number at polling stations in NA-48, Islamabad on Saturday.

There is a tough competition between candidates of Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI).

The two polling stations - Government Model School for Girls and Government Model School for Boys – witnessed highly charged voters who cast their votes peacefully.

I wish this kind of spirit was observed in Karachi, it seems people of Pakistan are peaceful people and want to live peacefully like the rest of the world but some elements just won't let it happen. Karachi has been under control of MQM for decades and they won't let that power go even if they will have to keep it by unfair methods, it is sad for the people of Karachi and Hyderabad who most likely want to see some one fresh comes in and clean up this mess in those cities.
