New Delhi: Pakistan goes to polls on Wednesday and many in Pakistan have predicted a victory for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party chief and former captain of Pakistan cricket team Imran Khan with unprecedented support and interference of the army in the electoral system.

Most Pakistanis, when asked, seem to believe their next prime minister will be the cricketer-turned-politician. While this excites some, others are disillusioned by the thought. There are others who argue that the PTI, which has seen the successive poor performance in the past elections, has finally come of age.

“We have three options. An untried party supported by the military and two parties which have ruled one after the other and have both been accused of corruption,” Zarar Khuhro, an analyst, says.
