According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, Pakistanis are more hopeful about the country going in the right direction post-elections than they were pre-elections.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “In your opinion, is our country going in the right or wrong direction?” Responding to this, 25% said ‘right direction’ and 75% said ‘wrong direction’. However, 1% did not give a response.
Respondents were also asked the same question just before the elections, responding to which 15% said ‘right direction’ and 85% said ‘wrong direction’.
