PESHAWAR: University of Peshawar Political Science Department Chairman Professor A Z Hilali has said that young voters have played decisive role in the victory of Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf (PTI) during 2018 general elections. Dr Hilali said around 70 per cent young voters have polled their votes on July 25 elections in favour of PTI because Imran Khan had stood against status quo in politics, unemployment and corruption in the country.
“The active participation of youth during polling process is a good omen for democracy as they are the future of Pakistan,” he said, adding political parties would now realised that people wanted solution of their problems and could not be misled on hallow slogans more.
“The smooth and peaceful conduct of election is the victory of democracy and Pakistan, he maintained. “The young voters need jobs, quality education, better health, social and economic services and other political parties had completely failed to provide the same to masses in their respective regimes during last 70 years.”
