Violence, threats as Pakistani elections loom

Pakistan's campaign season has been marked by violence. The Pakistani Taliban has directly threatened the main secular coalition partners in the outgoing government and one candidate was killed earlier this month in an attack that was claimed by the Taliban. Hasan Askari Rizvi, professor emeritus of political science at Punjab University, tells Worldview about the candidates and shares his predictions. (Photo: AP Images).
