why wont you cast a vote?

From the poll that we ran recently, 62 people voted, out of which 45% said you will NOT cast a vote, while only 18% said they will. The rest of the visitors were not from Lahore, hence not eligible.

All the reasons you guys have NOT to vote in the upcoming
elections. The most logical reasons, i’ll make a poll of and we’ll see
how many people share your view.

    I am with Imran Khan’s party. Since he is not running, I am not voting for any other leader out there. I don’t have any hope from them. Hence, I said not casting vote in the poll.

    As a responsible citizen everyone should vote, but as far as my vote is concerned, i am still unable to figure out the…right politician ;)

    I have been out of Pakistan since 1983 and recently started following up on Pakistani politics. I can not believe how the hell Nawaz Sharif became 2 times Prime minster of Pakistan. He is jumping monkey who loves Nihari , I am sorry no credibility in him. This also shows Pakistan does not deserve democracy as people end up voting for these idiots.

    I like Imran but he is someone who need to calm down before saying things , I think he has good intentions but does not know how to say things. Also I do not like him supporting Mullah’s as Mullah’s of Pakistan are problem from cricket to Pakistan.

    Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country

    I dont see any party or person eligible to run this country, atleast for now. Still, we should give democracy a chance by not wasting our votes this time. I would rather have voted for Imran Khan if only he would have parted ways with mullahs…

    well if you were gona vote for imran and gona boycott the elections like him then your vote doesnt count anyway as he was obviously gona lose terribly. LOL

    as pretty simple said you should go out and vote and take some responsibility and help the transition to democracy,
    i am out of pakistan so cant vote, all the parties standing are corrupt but still you should go out and vote, if i was voting i would have choosen to vote for PMLQ, even thought i know they are corrupt but they have done more for my city lahore and punjab then any other gov. in the last 5 years we saw some big projects like ring road, industrial estates, lots of roads, big investments coming in like sports city, shiek zayed center etc., libety market finaly renovated and some hope for a mass transit system, so even thought your gona vote for a corrupt party, who cares as there all corrupt, but boycotting this elections like imran khan is doing is taking a step backwards and giving the corrupt more support.

    Why do Pakistanis clamour for democracy and then boycott it when they get the chance? Do you expect perfection at first try.

    Honestly I wish the public in this country would just make up its mind.

    Dear Listeners,
    Our politicians do not have national or provinicial or regional voices that are authentic. Bubbles exist and need a voice. The bubbles need not be ashamed of their spherical nature.
    It is important to recognize that non majority governement is not always coalitionary.

    Although I am dual citizen, my adopted country(USA) laws, do not allow for voting in another country, and the penalty is de-naturalization of adopted country. This is ain reason I cannot vote.

    I can not believe Nawaz Sharif was twice PM of Pakistan. May be his father use to help him. The max he should be is governor of Pakistan. Not the ruler of Pakistan. Once again Pakistan has failed to produce credible politicians since the birth of Pakistan. So I wish Shaokat Aziz can make his own party I will vote for him.
    Or We need to get Fatima Bhutto the real Bhutto in the picture.

    This blog has had more positive comments that i would’ve imagined. Kudo’s to the lahori commentors!

    Next i would’ve put up a poll on the reasons for not voting, but the swing here is unanimous.

    Pretty Simple put is very eloquently in his reply, “you should go out and vote and take some responsibility and help the transition to democracy” which is the theme of these posts.
