Abstract:

The report looks at the rise and fall in popularity of political parties across the four provinces of Pakistan. Voters were asked about their political preferences during 2008 elections and then were asked to whom they would vote for in 2013 elections.  The analysis takes into account provincial, regional, rural and urban, gender and age specific segregation. Based on the respondents’ voting choices in 2013, variations in the popularity of political parties are examined. Finally, the report examines how these variations have affected the political landscape since 2008. A significant change in the country’s political landscape clearly emerges from our analysis.
