In a pursuit to ensure the victory of the establishment chosen candidate, others are being targeted by the authoritarian Pakistan regime by registering fake cases against them. In the latest development, Ali Wazir, the former member of National Assembly and PTM activist has taken it to twitter to raise the concern over the undemocratic and authoritarian actions of the establishment, working under the commands of Pakistan Army, regarding the upcoming general election.

He said that other than the specific candidates, the others are being targeted, their offices are being closed and banners are being taken down. Highlighting the case in Upper Waziristan, he said that his and Alamzaib’s office in Miranshah, Khaisor, and Chaghmalai have been targeted in a similar way and the FIR has been registered.  

It is no hidden fact that elections in Pakistan are not a democratic way to select a candidate but a process to establish a military chosen candidate in a democratic looking way. Ali Wazir has been a member of National Assembly and targeting him like this speaks volume about the democratic and transparent elections. The only reason that he and people of similar caliber are targeted is because they challenge the hegemonic and totalitarian control of the Pakistan Army and have a dissenting voice. As Pakistan Army thrives on the precarious conditions of its own people, it is impossible for any development-oriented, rights-oriented and eventually people-oriented representatives to be on the same page. And as they align with the cause of people, Pakistan Army feels the nerves with their candidature that could potentially alter the outcomes of their scripted election façade.
