Yes accept the results, you dictator.
I have every right to oppose the corrupt Sharif brothers rule in Pakistan. I stand with the opposition and Imran Khan against Nawaz Sharif, the "loha chor" leader of Pakistan. He has no guts to object or criticise the America who are exploiting Pakistan- a country that has given more sacrifices than America in its war agains terrorism. Nawaz Sharif is purely a brainless Punjabi leader. He does not care about Khyber Phukhtoon or Karachi.

Nawaz Sharif must declare all his assets both inside and outside the country and a special commission must ascertain how much of that belongs to the Treasury of poor Pakistan.

1) Pakistanís population problem will not remain for long. Growth peaked at 3.4 per cent in 1982, but then wilted and is now at 1.8 per cent. Indiaís peaked at 2.3 per cent in 1977 and is today 1.4 per cent, but Pakistanís rate of decline is sharper.

2) The rate of Pakistanís GDP growth will not rise in this decade. It was about 2.5 per cent last year. One reason, the minor one, is that Pakistan has a problem of order that its army does not appear willing to solve.

3) The larger reason is that Pakistanis have a cultural barrier against saving money. Pakistanis save nine per cent of the GDP. Indians save over 30 per cent. I would say that this pattern of behaviour has to do with the caste of South Asiaís Muslims and certain aspects of religion. Low savings rate = low growth.

4) Pakistan will be left behind in South Asia in 25 years. In the five years between 2005 and 2011, Pakistanís GDP per capita went from $2,150 to $2,420. Indiaís went from $2,200 to $3,200.

5) If this trend continues, and Pakistan continues to refuse free trade with India, India-Pakistan will look like South Korea-North Korea by 2037. A wealthy and powerful India will constantly worry about poor, unstable but nuclear-armed Pakistan.

6) There was no Malala Yousufzai moment. The consensus in Pakistan is against fighting the militants. Pakistanís English columnists and writers will continue to remain on the wrong side of a consensus they do not entirely grasp. Why do I say this?

7) What the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and al Qaeda want in order for them to stop their war against the Pakistani state, is full-dress sharia. Essentially, they are demanding the implementation of Article 227 of Pakistanís Constitution, which also assures Pakistanis sharia. The TTP and al Qaeda are on the right side of the law. I would say they are also on the right side of the consensus.

8) Anti-incumbency is felt in the state, not the centre. Unless Pakistan is very different from India, Punjabis fed up with governance should have voted against Nawaz Sharifís PML-N that has power in Punjab. This means that the PPP should have done well in southern Punjab and that someone, either Imran Khan or the PML-Q should have done well in central Punjab.

9)PML-N, Nawaz Sharif as PM makes no difference to the economy, he will not be able to turn the economy, because he is an American Agent. History repeats itself again.

10) The United States will expand its theatre in Pakistan. Unmanned aircraft will spy on and carry out attacks in a wider area than they are doing currently.

100% true.
Altaf Husain, Sharif Brothers and many other corrupt leaders must be arrested and prosecuted on corruption charges.

Parvez Musharraf must be released by Nawaz Sharif.
Imran Khan must take over the power of the country.

PML N is a group of Punjabi dhashat gard Politicians who want total control of Pakistan, Foreign Affairs, the Military, the Justice department, the Police, the Treasury, the cricket team, everything.....

The more power they accumalate, the more power abuse will occur.
In any good Democracy, political power must be shared and there should be some checks and balances.

Right now, the Shareer Brothers are like Gods of Pakistan.

Shareer Brothers want to hang Musharraf. That will create a tremendous chaos in Pakistan. They should release him and let him form his own political party.

Nawaz Sharif has commited money launderings and Punjabi Politicians have commited murders, rapes and thuggery too, but they will never be held accountable for anything. Altaf Husain the MQM leader is also thought of as a murderer. He should be taken to a British court, prosecuted and punished promptly.

Only Imran Khan can save Pakistan.

Jinnah sahab's soul must be tossing and turning in the grave.
