rate the reasons

I asked what were the reasons you will not vote in the upcoming elections. The following four were the most cited. Now, i open up the floor to everyone to rate which reason is most important to you.

This post in part of a series of posts to understand the current apathy the KMB visitors feel towards elections and democracy.

    All the reasons in this poll apply equally. I think we all know that.

    mansoor, the quality of your posts has been in decline over the past few days.

    Why don’t you write about something informative or something that would give rise to constructive debate.

    This is just going to turn into a complainfest.

    Why dont you write about who you think the ideal candidate would be and what he/she would need in order to come into power.

    @huzefa: this post if part of a series, and i’ll be building up to some very valid points, however, these things need to be hashed out before we start there.

    stay tuned, you just might be surprised ;)

    In a country where dictator can cut off water connection of CJ Iftikhar’s islamabad residence(legally he can’t get it vacated so he have resorted to these cheap tactics) while the same dictator himself illegally occupies ARMY house to which he is not legally entitled to…

    and then you talk about holding free and fair elections under the same dictator’s nose..who can go so low to settle personal vendatta .. running everything according to his whims and wishes..
    “i don’t want him to be CJ” “i want to retain ARMY house” “i want him to vacate CJ house” …

    this dictator must have even made finalized the list of candidates whom he wish to see as winner in these sham elections..its completely a futile exercise,waste of tax payers money just like millions he wasted during his own referendum

    @asa: asan cheez khopri mein issliye nahi jaate, kyonkay ‘ground realities’ unnko support nahi karte. humary psyche ban chuke hai kay jahan moka miley, wahan khancha nikalo. doesn’t matter what it is, be it while driving when a signal is red and they move to the opposite lane to get ahead first, at shadi’s, where they break on food as if they haven’t eaten for days. civility sikhaye jaate hai, aur 90’s ke taba huey generation nay nahi sikhye. yes, i blame the mqm terrorists for that, incase you’re wondering..

    jab ghar mein ye tarbiyat milte hai kay apna haq cheenon, apnay lye jiyo, aur apnay elava kisse ka na socho, tou kya expect karte ho?

    seedhi see baat nahi hai ye, ye ground realities thori mukhtalif hai mere bhai!
