Tomorrow’s Pakistan election raises fears of ‘creeping coup’

Pakistan has a long history of military rule or heavy military involvement in politics. And, while the formal political powers held by the military were done away with in the past decade, the institution remains extremely powerful and fears continue to grow that they are or will use their influence to manipulate the democratic process. The elections, scheduled for July 25, have also been marred by heavy terrorist activity against candidates, with many candidates across the country having been killed by suicide attacks.
