ISLAMABAD - Since the May 2013 elections are going to be conducted today (Saturday), major political parties of the country are not only dissatisfied with the arrangements of caretaker government but also deeply concerned over the results of the elections in given circumstances.

Expressing their deep concern for not having level playing field to contest elections, some of them seem ready to conditionally accept the results of polls while other have more or less prepared their mind to agree with results for continuation of democracy.

Amid bomb blasts, firing incidents and other related lawlessness situation, which directly affected the election campaigns of political parties, some of the factions even viewed that there was no need of caretaker setup for the country.

Expressing their deep concern over performance of caretaker government, Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) commented that arrangements for elections were not satisfactory.

"Performance could be much better but PML-N will accept the results with open heart provided if any big rigging is not committed," said PML-N senior leader Mushahid Ullah talking to TheNation, adding that PM-N had already accepted results of 2002 elections which were rigged.

While their rival Pakistan Peoples Party-Parliamentarians (PPP-P) having almost same concerns also expressed a bit reservations over the arrangements made by the caretaker government.

"There is need to provide full security to candidates but sadly things are not up to the mark," said senior PPP leader Latif Khosa.

To a question about challenging the results of the polls in given circumstances, he said it was too early to comment on it. "We accepted results of previous election though it was rigged," the former governor Punjab said.

Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI), which is for the first time contesting on large scale, has serious concerns over caretaker government's arrangements for polls.

"We are not satisfied with arrangements of caretaker government...Despite all this mismanagement we will accept results which is most likely to be good," said PTI's Information Secretary Dr Shireen Mazari.

Having almost same remarks about caretaker government, Awami Nation Party (ANP) expressed deep concern over the government's arrangement. "I am not seeing free, fair and transparent elections and there can be reservations on results," said ANP's Zahid Malik talking to this scribe.

When contacted, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid sketched bad picture of caretaker setup and remarked there was no need of this setup. "How they can conduct good elections when they have no capacity to do so. But we will accept the results if big rigging does not happen anywhere," said senior PML-Q leader Ajmal Wazir.

The religio-political parties Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Fazl) also expressed deep concern over caretaker government and their arrangements for polls. "Even Pre-poll rigging happened but no action was taken against anyone," said JUI-F spokesman Jan Achakzai, adding that they would accept the results but with reservations.

To a question about accepting the results, JI central leader Liaqat Baloch said that it would all depend upon today's (Saturday) performance of the government.
