Pakistan held its 8th elections on 11th May, 2013, with an unprecedented turnout of 60% with both youth and women participating. It is also first time in Pakistan’s history since partition that an elected government completes its term to hand over power to another elected government. This is seen by many as a potentially game changing milestone in Pakistan’s political and constitutional history largely because previous attempts towards democratic transition of power resulted in Martial Laws, Military coups and even assassinations.
