This was a historical election: Now let us move on

I know Imran Khan’s fans are disappointed; as one of them I toally understand their pain. This was a good election and the results are also a clear expression of Pakistan’s digital divide: there is not much twittering or Facebooking going on in our villages and if you are winning on Twitter, it does not mean you are also winning in the dusty streets of Pakistani villages where Imran, Nawaz sharif and others show up only around election time.
Let us move on: this is a victory against those who have previously conquered their own nation at least four times in recent history.

Eight Countries Allow Pakistani Expats  to Vote in May 11 elections

Several countries including Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Australia and the United States have agreed to allow Pakistani citizens living in their territories to cast their votes at designated polling stations.

However, the Pakistani election commission, despite the issuance of an emergency presidential ordinance, has declared that it is impossible for them to make the necessary arrangements to include overseas Pakistanis in this election. Our question is simply this:

Yes, the ordinance was passed only two days before elections, but could they have not prepared for this in advance?

    Dear Raja Sahib,

    We hope that great people like you will succeed and there will be an end of this shame democracy and shame government which does’t obey Supreme court’s orders on NRO and corruption cases. You can see ministers on national TVS saying that it is their right for corruption, Some can be seen fully drunk and addressing some forum. It is not only a shame but humiliation of this Nation. We have to come out for this noble cause to get rid of corruption. Please join Raja Sahib for your future and for your country.
