Some eight months ago I wrote an article about the possibility of the PPP losing the elections. Then, many people felt that I was crazy, that there was no way the PPP was going  to lose, as a mater of fact it was a foregone conclusion that the PPP will be reelected.

From the e-mail I received then, one would have thought that the PPP had already won a new five-year term; that was just eight months ago. Fast forward to the elections campaign for the past week, the predictions and pronouncements have dramatically changed.
