Introduction to the series on Gallup Pakistan Electoral Repository:

This press release is part of a special press release that aims to provide the readers interesting findings from Gallup Pakistan’s electoral database. Empirical analysis of elections in Pakistan is quite restricted and the Gallup Pakistan Exit Poll, on which this press release is based, is the only Exit Poll in the country providing a window into the minds of Voters on issues like who voted for whom and why? The Gallup Pakistan Electoral Repository program aims to fill this void of dearth of data in anticipation of the 11th General Elections in the country. The press releases, as part of this programme, are geared towards academics and policy makers as well as voters for the next general and provincial elections. For more information on the programme please contact Gallup Pakistan (isb@gallup.com.pk).


This particular press release provides an overview of political activism in the 2013 general elections. In democracies, political activism is utilized to raise awareness and public support for the position of a certain candidate (or his/her party). Political activism might be door-to-door canvassing, organizing public meetings, and rallies, or hoisting flags.
