The triumph of the tiger whilst a seemingly déjà vu experience, marks a new era in the democratic history of Pakistan. Pakistan’s 65-year narrative has taken a turn for the better: the nation has explicitly expressed its will to survive as it exercised its voting rights and a government has completed its five year tenure. A care-taker set-up is in place, anxiously waiting to hand over the burden of state responsibility to the victor. The care-takers with their lack of public mandate have managed to keep things buoyant and have on purpose, refrained from tackling difficult challenges. Perhaps, it is this role only that is suited to them and the bold decision-making falls best within the domain of a government that is voted into power by the masses.
