The election results in Azad Jammu and Kashmir are not unexpected. If the PML-N or the PPP had won, it would have been upset. Before the election, it was decided that the PTI would form the government in Azad Kashmir, just to see how much it increased in the last election in which it had two seats, the PML-N which had 33 seats. What is the shortfall and what is the share of the PPP, which had three seats, in the Kashmir elections this time?
The Kashmiris, while maintaining their tradition, have given the opportunity to the one who has the government in the federation to form the government in Kashmir. Analyzing the Azad Jammu and Kashmir elections, we saw the reaction to the tension in Pakistan’s politics in the Azad Kashmir elections. The elections in Azad Kashmir were held between the parties of Pakistan due to the weakness of the state parties, so in the elections of Kashmir we also saw the color of Pakistani politics. There was a time when there was competition between the Liberation League, the Muslim Conference and other state parties. Then under Bhutto, the PPP was the first non-state party to contest elections and then Pakistani political parties turned to Kashmir. In Kashmir elections, no one’s statement is defeated and no one’s statement wins. Voters see who can solve their problems.

The federal government has to release funds, so the first choice of Kashmiris is the party that has a government in the federation. Looking at the election campaign, Maryam Nawaz ran a full-fledged election campaign and mobilized the voters by holding impressive rallies, creating an electoral atmosphere but despite this, the PML-N could not achieve the desired results.
Talking to friends of the Muslim League about this, he said that it was a question mark for the party leadership that it did not show interest in the Azad Kashmir elections and lost almost all the seats in Punjab. The party president could not save his seat in Lahore, the general secretary in his hometown of Narowal while Khawaja Asif could not save his seat in Sialkot. The responsibility of Punjab was with these leaders as Maryam Nawaz Sharif had single-handedly taken a stand against Imran Khan, the Establishment and the PTI’s ATM machines in Azad Kashmir.

The seats won by PML-N were won by Azad Kashmir. PML-N’s defeat in Punjab seats is a question mark for other party leaders. In the Azad Kashmir elections, the Chief Election Commission looked weak and could not establish its writ. The Election Commission issued orders to Federal Minister Ali Amin Gandapur to leave Azad Kashmir for violating the code of conduct but he could not implement his decision from the administration. There is a need to strengthen the Election Commission so that it can implement its decisions in accordance with the Constitution and the law. Opposition parties, if they want solid evidence instead of allegations of fraud, should bring it forward, otherwise the fraud they are referring to has been their benefactor in the past and if they object to it, they should be in their time. They wanted to carry out electoral reforms which they did not do, for transparent and fair elections.
