Prediction check

So how did the empty predictions do - pretty darn well if you look at the last one!

  • In Sind the thuggish MQM will win in Karachi and the PPP will take the rural areas. Check.
  • The religious parties will lose their governments in the NWFP and Balochistan. Check.
  • Punjab is going to be where, at least in the short term, the future of Pakistan will be decided. To be seen.
  • The elections will be reasonably fair Check
  • but the losing groups will claim otherwise. Check [this out]
I will try to put together some kind of analysis of the results - but it may take a bit. Until then watch the PPP step back from its anti-Musharraf rhetoric. The dance continues.
