Ahead of Pakistan’s elections, parties hope to woo young voters



Pakistan is gearing up for parliamentary elections on February 8. With 60 percent of the population under the age of 30, the youth vote will be decisive. Historically, voter turnout in Pakistan has been particularly low among young voters. Moreover, Pakistan’s two-year political and economic crisis has profoundly damaged their confidence in the electoral process. In a bid to connect with the youth, political parties are turning to social media. Our correspondents Shahzaib Wahlah and Sonia Ghezali report, with the collaboration of Talha Saeed.
