Here in Pakistan people call yesterdays elections: A day to remember...
Why? Well, look at the following figures.
The PML-Q (Musharraf's party) received during the 2002 elections around 118 seats, now they stand at 25 (projection is that with all votes counted, PML-Q will receive around 45 seats). MMA, the pro-taliban, pro-Al Qaeda religious alliance, received 63 seats in 2002 elections, now they stand at 3. Did all of its supporters blow themselves up?
Find above the preliminary results of the Pakistani elections. Click on pic to be able to read it mlore clearly. NA stands for National Assembly, so that is the main parliament (most important of course). PP means provincial assembly Punjab, PS is provincial Sindh, PF is provincial Frontier (NWFP), PB is Balochistan.
Check out the disaster for the MMA, good results in NA for PPP, great results for PML-N in Punjab, PML-Q (Musharraf's party) did pretty well in Balochistan, especially due to boycot there by many anti-Musharraf parties. Left wing Pastuns of the ANP - well done.
Later today the final results.
