It’s the weekend before the elections and we have still somehow not decided who is eligible to contest the polls and who is not. The decision on Abbasi aside, the near-rabid scrutiny of league leaders has become a pattern of this election and the timing is making no difference. League leader after league leader has been shown the door by the judiciary while their opponents received clean chits that they now wear like prize medals. Rabbani made a point to question the caretakers’ deafening silence regarding the deployment of army personnel inside polling stations and ECP’s silence over the victimisation of two political parties in particular. Was it a sign of warning regarding what was going to come on the larger scale?
