Election Tribunals Justice Delayed is a Loss for Pakistan

Justice delayed for PTI DAWN: Analysis: Justice Delayed for PTI” – Having been mentioned in the article for the tweet “Dr Awab Alvi tweeted: sad fact what the election tribunal should have decided in 120 days, takes one year, 11 months and 23 days — justice delayed is justice denied.

What bothers me, is critics still see this as a IK vs PML issue, critics simply can’t fathom the fact that the sanctity of the vote is the ultimate cornerstone of having any semblance of democracy in Pakistan – if the sanctity of the ballot is not guarded with all the might of the ECP & judiciary democracy and the parliament are mere bricks in a crumbling castle. Unless you don’t publicly humiliate and prosecute those responsible for destroying the fundamentals of democracy, the next elections will be exactly the same. The art if delaying justice let alone tribunals is what has brought Pakistan to this lawlessness, rich & powerful skip from one date to the next until the issue may as well be long gone history.

Brings me back to the rebuttal debate I had with Zahid Ibrahim in August of last year, the Election Commission was responsible to deliver a 100% free and fair elections – at least the public should have felt some semblance of free and fair elections, not a 73% elections

No matter who wins in the re-elections in NA-125 does not matter, genuine Pakistanis could now cherish that after all the hue and cry, at least one constituency got exposed – imagine it takes one leader exerting all his heart and sole of 1 years, 11 months and 23 days to persevere with his mere grit to expose one constituency, whatever happens to a common man getting any semblance to justice …. is a sorry tale ….

Critics will/still paint this as a PTI victory, but in my heart and sole …. I think today – Pakistan won ….


PML transfers Senate Candidates to Punjab for Election

PML-N candidates Salim Zia, Nehal Hashmi, Rahila Magsi and Iqbal Zafar Jhagra get their votes transferred to Punjab overnight and the very next day all their names appear on PML’s list of candidates for senate

How amazingly brilliant of Election Commission of Pakistan to oblige the PML 20 days after the announcement of the election schedule – bypassing all rules under the garb approval obtained from “competent authority”

“On February 10, almost 20 days after the election schedule was announced, got issued letter No F 3(2)/2014-Cord with a title “Immediate By UMS/Fax”, conveying to the ROs and CECs of all the four provinces that the approval had been obtained from the “competent authority” under which the “provisions of Section 20 of the Electoral Rolls Act, 1974 are not applicable to election programme issued by ECP”. The letter also directed the authorities to “proceed in the matter (registration/transfer of votes) under intimation to the commission”. – shared by Awab Alvi on Facebook


PML Family Prepares to Serves itself Justice

Observe how PML Family prepares to serve itself justice by quickly moping up cases against themselves just as they come into power

The judges overseeing the Sharif family cases of Hudabiya Mills, Raiwind Mansion and Ittefaq Foundaries, are suddenly removed and proceedings delayed since no replacement judge is available to overseeing these issues

A mini story appears on the backpage of Express (29th May) almost as an after thought – http://bit.ly/111Y3jN


PML Photoshop Blooper by Showbaz Sharif at Badami Bagh

Seriously when your team is desperate to “create” news & your leader cant “create” news – your media cell gets desperate to “create the news”

Another Blooper tutorial of how NOT to PhotoShop by PML

  1. The standing crowd is looking ahead in the distance
  2. While Showbaz bends adjacent to a brick wall
  3. Standing crowd has NO CLUE that there is a wall there and it is SUPPOSEDLY being built
  4. Sunlight shadow is different for the audience and Showbaz is uniquely well lit
  5. The color of the hand is interestingly too white (no shadow despite you will notice a differently shaped shadow near the spade & the hand
  6. The head / hair is distinctly photoshop trimmed –
  7. A few blemishes of Photoshop lasso exposed near the lower border of the hand & the starting of the sleeve

A pre-election publicity stunt by PML-N Showbaz Media team on the victims of Badami Bagh


Another Tax Amnesty NRO – Crooks Protecting Crooks

Sayem AliSayem Ali writes in The News – Another NRO: It is another medal of honour for our parliamentarians and another great victory for democracy that President Zardari’s PPP, Nawaz Sharif’s PML-N and all other parties set aside their differences and unite to protect the rights of all criminals, smugglers, drug peddlers and tax chors.

All for one and one for all.

The amnesty bill is nothing more than a smokescreen to siphon off the billions made by influential people in power in the last five years to safer destinations. All the billions of ill-gotten wealth made in the rental power projects, the red and pink buses, steel mills, PIA, Railways, etc. will now be moved out of Pakistan; all thanks to the tax amnesty bill. – Sayem Ali

PML-N leaders making efforts for settlement of Shahzaib murder case

Shahzeb KhanPakistan Today comes out with a more clearer story as compared to their Hoax Story published against Shahzeb Khan movement

It seems like PML-N Sindh President Ghaus Ali Shah tried to barter Rs 25 crore as blood money but Nabil Gabol a close family member of In memory of Shahzeb Khan rejected the offer and smugly countered to give a bounty of Rs 30 crore if the murderers surrendered to the police.

The Family has been categoric to deny any possibility of compromise and strictly want justice. Im sure the family may be under tremendous pressure and applaud them for holding their ground.

PML-N’s financial wizardry – Sayem Ali

PML-N's WizardrySayem Ali digs into PML-N’s chest thumping rant “most experienced economics team” Sayem has obliged us with a good a holistic factual comparison of the economic performance of PML in the two stints they have been in power – to show that it is dismal even racked against the economic tenures of Zia, Musharraf, BB’s two tenures

“The SBP Handbook of Statistics 2010 shows that the Nawaz Sharif government’s economic performance was the worst amongst all civilian or military government in Pakistan’s.

Average growth during Nawaz Sharifs two stints in power was only 4.1%, which is significantly lower than Ziaul Haq (5.9%), Musharraf (5.1%) and even lower than Benazir Bhutto’s two stints in power (5%)

PMLN performance was not only bad but it also deteriorated during Nawaz Sharifs second stint in power during February 1997 to October 1999. The economy expanded at only 3.1 percent during this time, which is the lowest pace of growth for any government on record.

To give you perspective it is exactly as bad as the performance of the current PPP led government, with average growth of 3.1 percent between FY09 to FY13. So while the PML-N rightly criticises the dismal performance of President Zardari’s five years in power, it compares its own equally woeful performance with the Asian Tigers?

.. With by far the worst performance of any civilian or military government, the ‘experience’ of the PML-N’s financial wizards is exactly the reason why Nawaz Sharif should replace them immediately”

Nawaz Sharif’s 10% Disaster Economics

Nawaz Sharif is so clueless about solving the economic situation in Pakistan that during an exclusive interview with Hamid Mir a few weeks back he proposes PML’s economic plan to hinge on a flat 10% tax rate.  It may honestly look tempting but the gravity of the statement further exposes how clueless PML-N is about solving Pakistans problems and is focused only on a marketing strategy to fool the people (and appease the rich) into believing that their experience in power will salvage this country.

So dastardly clueless is this plan that probably little does he know that next year we need $12 billion to survive in the following 12 months – $5 billion to finance the current account deficit and $7 billion to repay out debts (principal and interest), the following year it doubles to $24 Billion.  Giving tax breaks to the rich is again shooting Pakistan in the foot, PPP has looted this country to bankruptcy under the garb of corruption – Nawaz Sharif plans to help the rich siphon off money, while the poor can continue their curse of poverty

Nawaz Sharif’s Corruption highlighted in Raymond Baker’s book on Dirty Money

Raymond Baker in his book Capitalism’s Achilles HeelDirty Money and How to Renew the Free-Market System tried to understand the dynamics of how dirty money works, in his book he elboarately covers the Corruption in Pakistan and takes a swing at both Benazir Bhutto & Nawaz Sharif to say [Credit @Aleem_Ashraf]

Corruption and criminality run from the top down, with the political class constantly looting the national treasury and distorting economic policy for personal gain. Bank loans are granted largely on the basis of status and connections. The rich stash much of their money abroad in those willing western coffers, while exhibiting little inclination to repay their rupee borrowings. Pakistan’s recent history has been dominated by two families—the Bhuttos and the Sharifs—both merely tolerated by the military, the real power in the country. When it comes to economic destruction, there’s not a lot of difference among the three.

Documenting Samjhota Express

For quite sometime the political grapevine has been brewing with the news that there might be a covert pact between Zardari and Nawaz Sharif to soften their political punches upon each other so as to mildly join forces leading upto the elections and also in the process counter the political rise of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

The infamous Go-Zardari-Go slogan that was the main-stay of PML-N’s political rally immediately after the 30th October rally was significantly softened down, morphing into a verbal diarrhea on Imran Khan. Quite interestingly Imran Khan has been exposing this covert alliance between PPP and PML by coining the word “Samjhota (partnership) Express”.

The Samjhota “partnership” is exposed by Nawaz Sharif himself during a rally in Dadu, where he desperately tries to pacify the crowd from chanting the “Go-Zardari-Go” slogan, not once, twice but three time and then jokes that we should actually be talking about “Come-Come”

This should be the start of the expose on how the crooks of the status quo are joining hands to take another swing at ruining this country – People of Pakistan stay alert


How Shahbaz Sharif "Lost his Mojo"

As Shahbaz Sharif launches himself into the poetic rendition of Habib Jalib's famous poem – Main Nahin Manta, the irony was inescapable. It was as if he was rebelling against himself. It was a desperate attempt to sell himself as a revolutionary, but no one was buying it. Three years of alignment with the status quo had taken its toll. Shahbaz Sharif had lost his mojo, sacrificed at the altar of expediency. The Khadim of Punjab had been dethroned – LINK


2013 Elections, not Senate, the real prize by Zahid Ibrahim

Zahid Ibrahim strategically analyzes the political manipulations in the run up to the 2012 Senate elections – a definite MUST READ for anyone trying to decipher the Senate elections mystery … The major loser in the March 2012 Senate elections will be PML-Q, which will face a near wipeout. The big winner will be the PPP, who is set to gain almost a near-majority in the 104-member Senate. The PML-N is expected to increase its senators from seven to 13, whereas ANP will make similar gains, from six to 10 senators. The MQM will remain at its current strength of six senators.

The dissolution of the Punjab Assembly would delay the constitution of the Senate, at least to the extent of the election of 12-13 senators by the Punjab Assembly, perhaps even more, but for the PML-N it will mean losing its government in Punjab – LINK


Shumaila Rana Resigns but what about the Bigger Crooks

Shumaila Rana has resigned from her Parliamentary seat amidst a short bit of drama after she was caught using a stolen Credit Card for approximately Rs. 60,000. To be honest its great to see her cough up her seat, but one wonders that in comparison to her colleagues which are bigger looters and plunders she is in comparison a petty thief. I wonder when the real crooks start coming out of the closet

The list of our ‘poor’ Senators

Senators in preparation of the upcoming Senate elections have filed their declaration of assets with the Election Commission of Pakistan & Dawn published an investigative summary outlining some prominent politicians and their ‘official’ declared wealth.  A run down through the list will make many wonder as to what might be the actual definition of the word ‘official’. Of which Israr Zehri incidentally happens to be the richest….
