The Friday Daily: Elections in Pakistan

I spoke to Associate Professor Claude Rakisits from Deakin University about the recent elections in Pakistan. The presumptive Prime Minister is Nawaz Sharif, although there were allegations of vote rigging from his opponent, Imran Khan. It remains to be seen how the new leader will deal with the Pakistani Taliban.

This was first broadcast on The Friday Daily on 2SER, on May 17. As of next week I will be that show’s new presenter.

(Correction from Claude: The PPP came 2nd, not 3rd.)
