It gives me great pleasure to post the results of Elections, 2008. As you can see, the King’s Party, PMLQ, has been been routed by PPP and PMLN. PMLQ is over. The Elections night was full of pleasant surprises as major leaders of PMLQ lost in electoral battles. PMLQ leaders who lost in elections include Sheikh Rashid Ahmed (former federal Railways Minister), Chaudhry Shujaat Hussein (lost by a margin of 13000 votes), Chaudhry Amir Hussain (former National Assembly speaker), Dr. Sher Afgan Niazi (former federal Law Minister), Khursheed Mehmodd Kasoori, and Rao Sikander Iqbal. Maulana Fazlur Rehman also lost in one of his constituencies. The PMLQ that provided the essential political support to the rule of Pervez Musharraf is now brought down to dust.

As far as I can see, the people of Pakistan have been successful in avoiding any massive rigging of elections, despite sporadic instances. Moreover, the election results show a clear vote against Musharraf and Military, both associated with a myriad of problems faced by the citizenry,  from the people of Pakistan. Musharraf needs to take the cue and leave.
