(Video) Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) In Depth: Pakistan "Democracy on Test"

Topic: Pakistan : Democracy on Test

Topic Description:

Pakistan will vote in the elections on July 25th to elect a new prime minister... In its 70-year history, Pakistan has toggled between elected governments and military dictatorships, and never has a prime minister completed his or her five-year term. Political analysts say this year's election could have been an occasion for Pakistanis to celebrate their democracy. But, the two-month long campaign has been marred by violent attacks, in which scores have been killed. There are also reports of the media being suppressed. The campaign has particularly been fraught, given the military’s efforts to push Nawaz Sharif's party out of the running, in favour of cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan. So, is Pakistan's dream of undiluted democracy receding again? What are the other dominant issues this election and what is at stake in the neighbourhood?
