Expectations from Pakistan’s new Goverment

Pakistan election commissioned declared Imran Khan the leader of Tahrik –i-Insaf party as the winner of parliamentary elections in that country. He will be the next prime minister of Pakistan.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes: Imran Khan leading Tahrik –I – Insaf Party has won the majority of votes in parliamentary elections in Pakistan. The party has obtained 115 among 269 seats of parliament, but it is not enough to make the government from his own party alone.
Therefore the party has to establish coalition governments in states especially in Punjab state and even it should accept a coalition government in the capital.
Although Tahrik – I – Insaf in the political scene of Pakistan is a young party but it should form a coalition government with old and experienced parties such as People’s Party or other parties which enjoy of having the most experience politically. In any case, now the possibility of Imran khan’s becoming the next prime minister is very high. This young leader whose critics introduce him a man with little experience has to fight and resist against many challenges Pakistan facing inside and outside the country. The major problem that Imran Khan is facing inside the country is poverty and disrupted economy originated from other problems which draw an ominous picture from Pakistan. The other problem that Pakistan suffers more is increasing religious extremism and ethnical tendencies. Pakistan since its establishment has never tolerated religious and ethnical differences which harmed it a lot. Even today, there is no tolerance for religious minorities especially Shias in the society and politics and for other religious minorities especially Christians. Fundamental parties which are supported by Gulf region countries have high hand in creating such problems in Pakistan, while there is neither a power for curbing the problems nor a well intention.
The other is that the politicians of that country have not so far succeeded to stop the army from misusing its power in political affairs of the country. Nawaz Sharif the then prime minister of Pakistan to stop the army but not only succeeded but forced to resign from his job and presently he is in prison.
What have been stated above are a bit of problems in social and political arena that Imran Khan should stand and fight against.
In international arena, Pakistan due to supporting and hosting terrorist groups especially the leaders of Taliban and Al-Qaida is suffering from international isolation, and USA and the West do not think of Pakistan as the Pakistan of 70s and 80s who received billions of dollars to support the war against the then Soviet Union.
Therefore, the problems that Imran Khan facing in international field is not less than the problems he should fight against within the country.
Imran Khan from the beginning of his elections campaign was chanting attractive slogans that he seriously campaign against corruption, the problem that the two outstanding political families not succeeded to do so. ( Bhotto’s and Nawaz Sharif’s families).
In addition, during his election campaign and now who is close to the prime minister’s house is talking about improving relations with America, Afghanistan and India, even he claimed that he would remove the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan to implement the example of European nations in South Asia.
According to political experts, probably the Pakistan army will not reject Imran Khan’s word addressing America and the West but Pakistan policy regarding to India and Afghanistan should satisfy the intelligence service and the Generals of the Army. Therefore, the politicians in Pakistan do not take serious the statement of Imran khan who is experiencing working with the army just now. They suggest it would be better he as a prime minister, instead of using exaggerating words, think about how to manage and rescue the state policy from the monopoly of the army.
