Observing Pakistan

On the 5th of February (2008), Wajid Shamsul Hasan wrote a short poisonous letter filled with rhetorical rantings and exaggerations to the Guardian newspaper, entitled “This dictator should have no support.”

In sharp contrast to the above incoherent outburst, a sober minded and fair response has been submitted by Robert Evans, MEP Chair, European parliament election observation mission to Pakistan.

These excerpts are cited from Evans’ letter (“Observing Pakistan“):

. . . I am not sure it is wise for him to make sweeping generalisations such as “the elections are already stolen” and “rigging and malpractice are everywhere” without providing substantial evidence.

. . . the EU’s election observation team has had over 50 long-term observers in place for many weeks, watching the whole process, including electoral registration and media monitoring. Short-term observers will join them to oversee voting at thousands of polling stations as well as the counts and results announcements.

Only then will we be able to state whether the elections have fulfilled President Musharraf’s hopes that they will be “free, fair, transparent and safe”.
