Year 2018 will be most important for Pakistan. Politically 2018 will be the year of change for Pakistan as general elections will be held in the country on 15th of July 2018. This will going to be the first time in Pakistan history that two civilian government complete their tenure for the successive time. Out of 342 seats in National Assembly, 172 seats needed for the security.
This time three major political parties including PML(N) of Shehbaz Sharif, PPP of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and PTI of Imran Khan will be in main contest. In past year, there was a decline in the fame of PML(N) government after Supreme Court of Pakistan disqualified then Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over the corruption charges and he will never contest any election in Pakistan.
In recent time, Pakistan has very tensed relations with its most important neighbor INDIA. There are so many issues between India and Pakistan and there are so many ceasefire violations in the past year that results due to lack of confidence between the two nations. US President Donald Trump also blame Pakistan for not co-operating against the actions on terrorist and so he stops giving annual aid to the Pakistan.
So the upcoming time will not be honeymoon period for the upcoming government. To make a clean image of Pakistan across the world will be one of the most important task for the new government.
