Between 1997 and 2011, while the PPPC were still winning relatively fair elections, they were becoming increasingly alarmed that they were rapidly losing votes. (See figure below). If this trend continued, their era of political domination would soon be over and for all of the foreseeable future.
In 2015, while the PPP were still largely influencing the work of GECOM, there was a massive increase in registrations that were unlike any of the preceding years. Editor, this massive increase, to many looks like an attempt to rig the 2015 elections.
The PPPC government must explain why total votes for the PPPC decreased substantially over 4 preceding election cycles and why those numbers suddenly increased by 22% during the 2015 election cycle.
