A litmus to gauge the public sentiment vis a vis PTI's governance. This is even after PML N is engaged in infighting with two poles in the party. It is barely making it even with an inefficient opposition and the main opposition party that is busy infighting. It looks like we are in for a change of govt in 2023.

So just because this is a gated community, no one's gonna allege that they are corrupt or Indians?

Helped by the incompetence of its institutions and bureaucracy.. Ethnonationalism rules Pakistan at the end of the day - or rather the collective of people that are Pathans, Punjabis, Sindhis, Balochis and so on.

I don't think any party in Federal Government has ever performed this poorly in any local bodies elections.

PTI and PML-N almost have a tie, but the major development is, that latter has swept Punjab. Shows you how unpopular Buzdar administration is for Punjabis.

Who the f**k is still voting for PMLN :lol:

Do whatever you can to keep PTI in because PPP and PMLN would make Pakistan like Congo again.

I don't understand, isn't there a clean politician who is capable of leading a party? Why always the same criminals and fraudsters?

PTI should help to set up another party, recruit some good people and let them form a party. At least this way there would be a higher quality competition. They can flip flop in elections but they both deliver when in power.

That's shameful.
I visited South Africa when Nelson Mendela was on the throne and nobody liked his governance.
Imran khan is the same. Excellent visionary, but terrible at politics and governance.
Hope he fixes this in the little time he has now until next elections.

More than that, inflation is making people planted firmly in the anti-PTI camp. Signs are that the overheating economy is going to usher in further hardships for the common folk. By 2023, PTI would be even more unpopular. It is 2007-2013 PPP govt. all over again.
Unfortunately, a lot of what PTI struggled with was not of its own doing. What is more unfortunate is that whatever government comes next (2023) would spend 3-4 years firefighting on the economic front as the last 1-2 years trying to spend its way to an electoral victory in 2028. In the process, another artificial growth bubble would burst. We keep on getting submerged deeper and deeper into the morass (national debt is rising unabated while the size of GDP keeps shrinking with devaluing PKR) every 5 years, courtesy of naked populism. This is why the idea of a charter of the economy or a national government made sense while hotheads laughed at it. Pakistan needs to make tough decisions to address the structural problems that swamp out the growth each time. No political government could take those decisions for 5 years straight because it could then only dream of coming back to power in the future with no real chances of doing so. A national government could, however, take hits without concerning itself with the unpopularity.

That's true. Inflation and bad governance in Punjab is a huge factor in shifting of the vote bank of neutral folks, which is always the majority. It tilted towards PTI a bit in Punjab back in 2018 but now it's shifting back to PML-N, not because they have performed well as opposition, but because PTI has failed miserably in governance.

Look at how Lahore is being managed, just a small example; Dengue is taking a serious shape after years, and if you'd know the history of how it was controlled last time, you can guess only how it can re-emerge; negligence. The garbage problem is another area which is being overlooked. But of course, inflation tops it all.

PTI won 63 plmn 59 straight.


This is a link to all the wards.



Most of the independents are pti directly supported candidates which pti didn't field a candidate against and pti workers who did not get a ticket.

And in Punjab,


It's not that simple..

In bahawalpur 3 of the independants are pti supported people who pti didn't field any candidates against.

In multan Qureshi gave tickets to his circle and pti workers even stood independant mpa's were supporting them. They clean swept multan. Plmn only managed to win 1 seat rest were won by pti independant group.

In kpk out of the 9 independants 7 are supported by pti and they did not field a candidate against them.

In short all of the supported candidates and workers who didn't get the ticket will join pti.


In Punjab plmn won Lahore and Rawalpindi division while lost bahawalpur and gujranwala.

People compare Punjab's performance, and there is a consensus that PML N did a much better job. However, these are small-time things which ideally local governments should be looking into. PML N did not fail in this small-time governance, which should ideally be the vocation of local governments. It failed at the federal level in terms of the economic choices it backed or did not back. Again, refer to the same populist decision-making urges that stop political governments from making tough decisions as they have to get re-elected after a 5-year cycle. Structural issues remain unaddressed, and each boom and bust cycle makes us more indebted, shorts dollar supply in the economy, and devalues our currency, thereby reducing the size of our economy (GDP). However, the public does not care about the larger picture. It cares about paved roads outside its home, cheap vegetables, wheat, pulses, low utility bills, and a job for the family's breadwinner. Unfortunately, the long term interests of the common folk and their short term interests do not always align (decision-makers understand this, but the public does not), and this is where tough economic decisions have to be made which political governments cannot for 5 full years (or longer because of the nature of our economy's structural problems is so dire that it could take much longer).
