After the conclusion of the General Election 2013 on May 11, 2013, many political parties and individuals have charged that election, in at least some constituencies, was manipulated or rigged or mismanaged. In the light of the unexpected level of complaints on the conduct of General Election 2013, PILDAT has carried out an assessment the quality of General Election 2013 in a scientific and dispassionate manner. The Assessment of the Quality of General Election 2013 carries the results of the assessment carried out by PILDAT. This assessment indicates that the Quality of Election during the Pre-Poll phase has been significantly better than the quality during the Polling day and Post-Poll phases. This indicates that there was a relative dissatisfaction with the quality of election and arrangements on the polling day and immediately following the polling day (Post-poll phase). The assessment also offers recommendations for urgent reforms for the consideration of the ECP as well as the incoming Parliament. This assessment is published as part of PILDAT series of Position Papers as a commentary on fairness and quality of General Election in Pakistan.
