The News, 4 March 2015

The Pakistani daily tells us nothing new: political horse-trading also exists in developed countries. Strange, though, that the article ends with a para about Afghanistan – but at least, it quotes AAN on how voters are mobilised in Afghanistan:

“The “Reuters” had also quoted a researcher at the “Afghanistan Analyst Network” as viewing: “It’s a part of Afghan politics unfortunately, the current deal-making. You do not need to go to every each voter to convince them vote for you – you need to go to the elders, the tribal leaders and community leaders, and convince them to convince the community.”
