In the by-elections of Punjab, which party is the biggest party?

In the national politics of Pakistan, the province of Punjab has become the center of attention of the political circles at this time, where the by-elections in twenty constituencies of the provincial assembly are going to take place on Sunday, July 17. Kante's contest is expected. These by-elections are taking place after the seats of the 20 defected members of the Punjab Assembly of Tehreek-e-Insaf, who were disqualified by the Election Commission for voting against the party policy.

Importance of Punjab by-elections. The by-elections of Punjab have assumed an extraordinary importance in the country's politics. It is the first time in the 74-year political history of Pakistan that the formation or fall of a government has completely depended on the results of the by-elections. Yes, the results of the twenty constituencies of the Punjab Assembly will determine the winner of the throne of Lahore on the one hand, on the other hand, these results will play a key role in the decision of the political future of the Federation, if Tehreek-e-Insaf wins thirteen seats. So, the way to establish his government in Punjab will be paved, while PML-N needs to win at least ten seats to save its government in Punjab.Challenges faced by PTI and PML-N in the by-elections. The biggest challenge facing the Tehreek-e-Insaf is that in the by-elections of Punjab, it not only got the support of allegedly powerful constituencies like in the 2018 general elections. It is not, but on the contrary, this accusation is constantly being made by the head of Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan that in these by-elections, "Empire" is also mixed with Muslim League-Nun. Repeating the accusation again and again. On the other hand, the first challenge faced by the Muslim League-Nun was the difficult decision of giving election tickets to these 20 defected members, as a result of which a large number of League workers and former members of the Punjab Assembly did not accept this decision of the party with consent. So some of the candidates who participated in the election on the League ticket in the 2018 elections have withdrawn from the election campaign in the by-elections of Punjab while protesting against the party decision in some constituencies. Malik Asif Bha from Khushab PP 83, Pir Rafiuddin Bukhari from Lodhran PP 228, and Mohammad Riaz from Leh PP 282 are contesting as independent.

Similarly, in some constituencies, disgruntled League members are participating in the by-elections on PTI tickets, Irfanullah Khan Niazi from Bhakkar PP 90 and Pir Amir Iqbal Shah from Lodhran PP 224 are also contesting on Tehreek-e-Insaf ticket. are fighting Apart from the distribution of tickets, the sharp rise in inflation, and the element of voter anger against defecting members in urban constituencies has also posed a tough challenge for the League candidates. There is no denying the fact that rising inflation in the by-elections of Punjab will surely affect the opinion of the voters, but the Muslim League-Nun is trying hard to eliminate the negative effects on the election results. While the prices of food items are being distributed, free electricity was announced by Chief Minister Punjab Hamza Shehbaz last week, while the prices of petroleum products were reduced by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif just two days before the election. The announcement is part of the same election scheme to woo voters.

Maryam Nawaz is actively participating in the election campaign of the League candidates, where she seems to put the responsibility of inflation on the previous government in public meetings, but will the people believe her claim? Its decision will be possible only in the light of the results of the by-elections. On the other hand, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan's stormy election campaign ended on Friday in his address to the election rallies in Lahore, in which he convinced the people. tried to topple his government through an external conspiracy, after which the country is mired in political chaos, the massive public participation in PTI's rallies shows the popularity of Imran Khan's narrative, but The question is whether Tehreek-e-Insaaf will be able to convert this popularity into vote power or not. This question can also be answered in the light of the results received on July 17. 

Who will be the winner in Punjab by-elections? Before the Punjab by-elections, both the parties are announcing their victory as usual. Contrary to what appears to be the claims, various opinion polls are coming from media channels, journalistic circles, and local sources which show that in most constituencies, barring a few out of twenty-one constituencies, both A tight contest between the parties is expected, it seems premature and uncertain to claim victory for any party in most of the constituencies. An investigative and analytical report is being presented to assess the latest political situation and predict the outcome.

pp.7 Rawalpindi

The Non-League candidate from this constituency is Raja Sagheer Ahmed, who joined PTI after winning as an independent candidate in the 2018 general elections. Daya, who was elected as a member of the provincial assembly on the ticket of the People's Party in the general elections of 2008. In the last general elections, Raja Sagheer Ahmed got 44 thousand 286 votes, while against him, Raja Muhammad, the son of the League candidate Raja Zafarul Haq. Ali who secured the second position in the constituency by securing 42 thousand 382 votes while PTI's Ghulam Murtaza Sati was third. In addition to the personal vote bank, the League vote will also be available. In the last general election, if the votes of Raja Sagheer Ahmed and Non-League are counted, a total of 86 thousand 668 votes were obtained by two candidates, while PTI's Ghulam Murtaza Sati could get 40 thousand 332 votes, thus the overall lead of Raja Sagheer Ahmed in the last general elections. It reaches 46 thousand 336 votes, despite the popularity of Imran Khan's narrative, it seems to be a difficult challenge for Tehreek-e-Insaf to get the lead by eliminating this double advantage. In terms of local factionalism and the majority of communities having political influence, the position of the League candidate Raja Sagheer Ahmed seems to be slightly better.

pp83 Khushab

In the last general election, independent candidate Malik Ghulam Rasul Singha won by getting 68 thousand 959 votes, while against him, the League candidate Malik Asif Bha was second with 47 thousand 684 votes. had joined Tehreek-e-Insaf, but in this by-election, PML-N has given election ticket to Malik Haider Ali Singha, who is the brother of Malik Ghulam Rasool, PTI candidate in this constituency is Hassan Aslam, who is a former federal minister. And he is the brother of the current Member of the National Assembly Umar Aslam. In this constituency, Muslim League-Nun and Tehreek-e-Insaf are also facing the challenge of independent candidates from their own party. Similarly, the disgruntled activist of Tehreek-e-Insaf Hamid Mahmood Wadhal is also trying his claws as an independent from here. If the position of the party is examined in this constituency, it is known that it will be very difficult for the League candidate Malik Hyder Singha to win this election. There are two main reasons for this. He had withdrawn his candidate in favor of Sangha, as a result of which he got a large number of Tehreek-e-Insaf votes, but in this by-election, the candidate of Tehreek-e-Insaf is contesting the election in a vigorous manner, the second reason is that he is an independent and active candidate in the constituency. The popularity of League worker Malik Asif Bha, who got 47 thousand votes in the last election, although Hasan Aslam of PTI will also have to fight against the independent candidate of his own party, Hamid Mehmood Towana, but the vote bank of Muslim League 9 would be more divided here. It is seen that some local journalists are also claiming that the real contest here is between Hasan Aslam and independent candidate Malik Asif Bha. Hasan Aslam of Justice is being decided as the favorite.

The joining has strengthened the party in Bhakkar and then Imran Khan's grand rally at Darya Khan in the constituency has given life to this contest otherwise Saeed Akbar Khan Nawani would have won from here in a one-sided contest, though still in this constituency. Saeed Akbar Khan Nawani seems to be the strongest among all the candidates and the chances are that he will be elected for the eighth time.

In the last general election, the League candidate Azad Ali Tabasim was in the third place with 35 thousand 298 votes, but he did not participate in the election campaign of Afzal Cheema.
