Imran Khan gets huge support as campaign for Pakistan general election picks up

Pakistan is gearing up for general elections and campaigning for the same is in full swing with all the parties going all out to woo the voters. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan addressed an election rally in Mianwali, where the supporters turned out in large numbers to show their support to the legendary cricketer.
According to a report in Pakistan's Dawn News, though the turnout for the rally was huge, there were no women among the crowd. Members of Imran Khan’s party were quoted as saying that they were not invited for the rally as there was lack of segregated space for them, and that it could have led to misbehaviour with them.
The report further said that many who turned out at the rally were first-time voters, and were much convinced with the ideology of the cricketer-turned-politician. Addressing the gathering, Imran Khan said that he launched his poll campaign from Mianwali as it was from there that he began his political journey in 2002.

Pakistan media reports say that the PTI has emerged as one of the frontrunners in the run up to the general elections, scheduled for July 25.
However, the PTI chief also had his share of embarrassments during his election rallies. As per a report in The Express Tribune, a shoe was hurled at Khan during a poll rally in the Gujarat city. However, the shoe failed to find Khan and instead hit his party member Aleem Khan.
Following the shoe attack, the attacker was beaten up by Khan’s supporters and then handed over to the police. The report said that it was the second such attack on the PTI chief. Imran Khan’s party has alleged that such attacks have been carried out on the leader on the behest of the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz.

Imran Khan should be given a chance. He is persuasive and seems to have a road map unlike Nawaz the theft, milked Pakistan and did nothing in return.

which "current guy " if you are asking about Nawaz Sharif, then no as he is disqualified for life
Who are the candidates running for election and who do you think is going to win? What are the promises made so far in regard to the economy, internal and foreign affairs?

There are lots of issues that need to addressed concerning water and electricity shortage, tax and employment, energy, corruption. Although Imran Khan might be able to tackle some of these issues but he needs more than one term. You are not going to solve 60 years stack of problems in a 4 years term. Pakistan people party is also coming strong against IK although the later is enjoying popularity.

Three main Parties
1) PML- N-Nawaz sharif-Currently disqualified ..his party rules previous 5 years
2) PTI-Imran khan-Ruling party in KP
3) PPP -Zardari-Ruling in Sindh

With on going things no one knows but it seems state institutions are backing Imran khan along with some public support and majority of PML-N leaders are under trails by judiciary with PPP does not have that much vote bank in Punjab Imran khan seems favorite but who knows h=on he day of election how voters reach..In 1 month lot can change

Its a fight between PML-N and PTI , PPP can only matter after election in supporting either one after elections and seize as much as it can..
