KARACHI: Pakistan is faced with a serious political crisis which has the potential to transform into a constitutional crises. The President of Pakistan is under obligation to summon the meeting of National Assembly in the last week of current month (February) and before it determine the party or person to be invited to form a government and prove his majority in the National Assembly.

The sailing may not be smooth as political divisions are distinctly marked and increasing. With each passing day after Feb 8 General Elections, the instances of rigging are pouring in from all over the country. Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf claims to have won over 100 seats and alleges change of election results in as much as 70 constituencies on ground that as per Form 45 they got the winning votes but on Form 47, losers were declare winners.

In Sindh, Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) and Jamaat-e-Islami claims of massive rigging and managed success of selected candidates particularly in urban area including Karachi, The JI has challenged a number of results and it may lead to legal battle.

The dynamics in Khyber-Pakhtunkawa is also different from the rest of the country where PTI backed candidates have recorded a land slide victory almost wiping out Awami National Party (ANP) and JUIF.

Balochistan’s main stream leaders are also complaining of massive rigging and management of results to keep the nationalist groups out of corridors of power and confusion reigns supreme in already disturbed province which witnessed worse law and order situation just before polls.

As no political party can claim majority  in National Assembly and no one could claim mandate to form government, political analyst fear ‘Horse trading’ but again elected Independents who are backed by PTI if maintains their independent status, it may lead to a constitutional crisis in a country faced with economic crisis.
