PPP Takes High Road with “No Hate” Campaign for 2024 Elections

Islamabad, Pakistan: Stepping into the 2024 election battlefield, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has declared a unique weapon – a “No Hate” campaign. This bold move contrasts with the usual political mudslinging and promises to “bury the old ways of politics,” as stated by PPP leader Sharjeel Memon.

Launching with Positivity: The campaign kicks off on December 27, a symbolic day marking the anniversary of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination. Garhi Khuda Bakhsh, the Bhutto family’s ancestral land, will host the official launch, promising a mass gathering built on positivity and unity.

No Time for Negativity: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has made it clear: “We will have to bury the old ways of politics with an end-hate policy.” This stands in stark contrast to the revenge rhetoric and negativity often seen in Pakistani politics.

Focus on Issues, Not Rivals: Sharjeel Memon highlighted the need to address Pakistan’s real issues, not seek revenge on opponents. “The country’s problem isn’t taking revenge from one’s opponents, but the redressal of the nation’s issues,” he stated.

Unity over Division: The PPP sees itself as the unifying force in a divided landscape. “PPP is the only political party, who are bringing people together,” Memon said, emphasizing the need for national unity for Pakistan’s development.

Level Playing Field Demanded: Senator Sherry Rehman, another key PPP figure, demanded a fair and transparent electoral process. “We demand level playing field for the party and the conduct of elections on the designated date without any delay,” she declared.

Elections on Track: This announcement comes after the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) issued the official schedule for the February 8 general polls, with public notice expected on December 19 and nominations open from December 20 to 22.

The PPP’s “No Hate” campaign marks a significant shift in Pakistani politics. By focusing on unity and issue-based solutions, the party aims to stand out from the negativity that often dominates the landscape. Whether this strategy will resonate with voters remains to be seen, but it certainly adds an intriguing element to the 2024 election race.
