2013 elections: a ray of hope
THERE is hope that the nature of power politics will change in this country. A political party will soon be completing its five-year-long tenure. A peaceful political transfer of power to the next elected government will take place. However, the democratic government has failed to resolve the issue of the marginalised people of Balochistan. People continue to suffer from brutalities of the Frontier Corps. The killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti gave impetus to a Baloch national movement and also led to the deterioration of the law and order situation in the volatile province.
The government is expected to conduct free, fair and transparent elections. Let nationalists of Balochistan be given a chance to participate in the coming elections so that the dissident Baloch are brought to the table.
This will prove to be a significant development and may help in stabilising Balochistan.
