General Election 2018 : Predictable outcome of an unpredictable Election – Opinion Article by Dr. Ijaz Gilani


Ancient Chinese wisdom tells us that the progress of history is not linear; history progresses two steps forward and one step backwards. As far as the electoral race is concerned, its outcome
remains unpredictable, as forecasted by almost all colleagues in the polling industry. However, the political outcome of the elections is quite predicable: it will be a step backwards, after the two steps forward we took in the decade between 2007 and 2017. This observation is based on my personal assessment of the pre-election phase of the current elections.
