Presidential election has increased tension between political parties. People’s Party and Pakistan Tehrek-e-Insaf have put aside their rivalries and come closer to fight PMLN. It is said these two big parties and their smaller allies such ANP, Jamat-e-islam and PML – Q will emerge as a strong opposition. This was disclosed by Chaudhry Shujaat. At this moment there is only one national party with Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz). That is Jamiat Ulma-e islam. However, they have reservations against PMLN too. They are angry because they were not taken into confidence in the formation of Balochistan government.
Nawaz Shareef has got his president candidate elected with majority, but he had to paid a great price for this victory. PMLN’s small allies have become angry with them. Mian Shareef’s action has divided his own party. Everyone is saying that Mamnoon Hussain is Nawaz’s man. They are supporting his decision under compulsion.
Mamoon Hussain is not a political heavy weight. He is the favorite of prime minister. His decision to get Mamoon elected has raised questions against his integrity. It is said that Nawaz has not learn any lessons from his past mistakes. He is still living in 1997 when he astonished everyone by getting Mohammad Rafiq Tarar elected. He has astonished everyone in 2013. He ignored senior persons like Ghos Ali Shah. He was ideal for the president’s job and Muslim League N too.
Mamnoon Hussain’s election has increased tension in the country. It appears that opponents of PMLN will give them a tough time in the coming days. Imran Khan has given indication by refusing to attention All Party’s Conference that he would not support the government on issues of national interest.
Imran Khan has not forgot his defeat in the elections. He believed that he would win a large number of seats in the elections. It would make him prime minister of Pakistan. It appears he is not willing to support PMLN mentally. Presidential election forced him to work with PPP. He had always criticized PMLN for its relations with PPP in the past.
