The ruling PMLN that was actually in the eye of the storm and mainly on the hit list of the PTI, has been vindicated and therefore can complete their constitutional term ending in 2018. It could be taken for granted that had the verdict been in consonance with the petition of the PTI, the ruling party was left with no option but to resign.
That would have inflicted a devastating blow to the future image and standing of PMLN and only time would have determined when its stalwarts could stage a comeback in the power corridors of Pakistan.
The ECP should earnestly heed this observation of the Judicial Commission and rectify those lapses in order to make the 2018 elections foolproof, transparent and free from administrative glitches. That would be a redeeming outcome of this entire distasteful hullabaloo. Let us also watch how the elected representatives behave when the government presents the report before the parliament.
