It is high time for parliament to find a way out to ensure transparency in polling outcome of elections, computerization of electoral system including polling mechanism is one way out. By this way we can reduce post polling violence incidents and allegations of mass scale rigging. Possibility of rigging in this week polling in Kashmir is quite rare, in presence of free and independent media and judiciary rigging possibility is quite low, beside the difference in number of seats reflects clear electoral victory for PPP, if PML(N) judiciary is their to help.
Decency, respect for law and constitution is lacking from our political culture, intolerance, lack of acceptance of defeat in dignified manner are also rare virtues. In the long in case of continuity in democratic system eventually we might achieve an ideal political culture.
