    The allegations may or may not be correct but there are some
    interesting incidents; the polling at nearly all constituencies could not start
    before noon, one candidate a convert from PPPP to MQM got record 170,000 votes in
    a period of three hours’ polling and the when the affected parties staged a
    protest rally next day, the chief of MQM threated violence and secessions if
    his party’s “mandate” was challenged. These very facts alone make the integrity
    of the entire polling exercise in Karachi very questionable. The MQM chief’s
    reaction shows that everything was not normal; there was some game being played
    somewhere. The protest rally against MQM electoral victory is significant in
    the sense that no party in Karachi had the courage to challenge the party in
    the past, and if this was being done now, it was the real change. Read more at:
