Fresh elections are the only way out for Pakistan

It is almost universally accepted that the Pakistan parliamentary elections held on 8th February were totally rigged on the orders of the army generals, and had the elections been free and fair former Prime Minister Imran Khan's PTI would have got about 225 seats out of the 266 for which elections were held, instead of the 100 declared.

Even before the elections, the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Qazi Faez Isa whom I have called 'Justice Dramabaz', and who is a modern version of the 'hanging judge' of England, Judge Jeffreys, almost murdered democracy in Pakistan, by giving a verdict along with his two crony Judges on the bench, depriving the PTI of a party symbol.

The public revelation of Liaquat Ali Chattha, the Commissioner of Rawalpindi Division, that 13 PTI candidates who were leading by over 70,000 votes, were suddenly declared to have lost, has let the cat out of the bag, and is the last nail in the coffin of the bogus election result. It is obvious that the same happened all over Pakistan, not just in Rawalpindi division.

The people of Pakistan have refused to accept this rigged, sham, factitious and phony election, and its doctored, bogus, fake, and spurious results.
Any attempt by the corrupt Pakistan army to ram this swindle and phony results forcibly down the throats of the people of Pakistan by anointing Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz , Asif Zardari or Bilawal Bhutto, and others of the erstwhile PDM gang, will only lead to civil war, the people using guerilla tactics, as explained below :

What then is the way out?

The only way out is for the President of Pakistan to totally cancel this fraudulent election, and order fresh elections under the supervision of the UN or some other reputed international agency or reputed body of persons, to ensure that they are free and fair, and the army warned to remain in their barracks throughout the electoral process.

Unless this is done, terrible times are coming in Pakistan.
