  2. A very interesting constituency in which Pervez Elahi is the PMLQ candidate and Faiz Tamman is for PMLN and Mansoor Hayat Tamman is for PPP. Faiz Tamman won last time with over 100000 votes as compared to Mansoor who polled more than 70000 votes.

    PPP candidate is mansoor hayat tamman who got abt 76000 votes last time and was runner up.

    He met shahbaz sharif , but cud not get the ticekt becos PMLN already awarded ticekt to Faiz Tamman who was winnner form this seat last time getting more than 101000 votes. Then Mansorr tamman opted to join PPP as PPP was also not having candidate from this area.
    One of other important figure of the area Mumtaz tamman also joined PMLN.

    Pervaiz elahi is depending on district nazim goup here, but after main groupd leaving PMLQ, it will not b eaasy fro him to win here.
    Will be a tough contest between PMLQ and PMLN candiate whereas PPP candidate is expected to be at number 3.

    There is a complete topsy turvy situation here this time around.

    The winner Malik Faiz Tamman who won as independent, joined PPP after winning but later became 'patriot' and was made parliamentary secretary. Later on, all patriots joined Q-league.

    This time, Ch. Parvez Ilahi is himself contesting as Q-league candiddate from this constituency as well as from NA 58 in attock district. Malik Faiz Tamman is now PML(N) candidate. The previous PML(Q) candidate Mansoor Tamman who won on PML(N) ticket from here in 1990, 1993 and 1997 is now a PPP candidate. Go figure all that....

    Faiz Tamman won last time due to active support of hsi uncle Malik Mumtaz who was the district president of PPP. It was said that he wanted to field his daughter in law this time as PPP candidate. He is a staunch rival of PPP and is bitterly opposed to Mansoor Tamman's inclusion in PPP. Without his support, it will be extremely difficult for Mansoor Tamman to become seriously competitive on PPP ticket.

    Parvez Ilahi is relying on official resources as well as support of Hafiz Ammar Yasir, which is not much to rely upon. Unlike in NA-58, he seems to be in a much shakier ground here.

    So Faiz Tamman is likely to edge ahead.

    RESULT: PML(N) victory.

    Malik Mumtaz has already announce his support for Faiz Tamman. so he is strong position.

    @ GM
    I wish that the situation in NA-61 would have been that of which you ppl are talking about but unfortunately it is not so. Firstly Mumtaz tamman has never announced his support for Faiz tamman rather he was adressing Q-League public rallies before 27th december. If Elections would have been held on 8th january Pervez elahi would have won by at least 50,000 votes. I spent the last month there in my village and i know that still no big change has occured. Even after Elections postponement and BB murder neither mumtaz tamman nor Saleem Iqbal have changed their loyalities. If the current situation presists than please note my word that Pervez elahi will win from this constituency by at least 50,000 votes margin

    Some people are saying that after Benazir incident position of Ch. Pervaiz Elahi is weak in NA-61. But the real contest is between former MNA Faiz Taman and Ch. Pervaiz Elahi and PPP candidate Mansoor Hayat Taman will be on 3rd position. The actual position will be come up after the visits of Nawaz Sharif, Pervaiz Elahi to Talagang. I think its still a tight contest and its also the fact that the majority voters in NA-61 are on \'biradrism\' so it could be any body game.

    Parvez Elahi has, in order to win votes from this area where he doesn\'t belong to, directed some public funds for development projects. These were the burning demands of the people of this ignored area.
    It is notable that Parvez Elahi is contesting from many constituencies where there are no strong candidates available locally... he would have a better chance as such areas as Talagang are in dire need of strong representatives.

    It is quite probable that Parvez Elahi will not be seen in the constituency after winning the elections (just like Shaukat Aziz was never seen in Tharparker lately). This factor does live in people\'s minds. Besides, the assassination of BB has also turned some voters away from Parvez Elahi camp.

    It is evident that state funds are being used to run Parvez Elahi\'s campaign. He has paid tens of millions of rupees to figureheads like Malik Saleem Iqbal for example, to support him and run his campaign. In turn the funds have trickled down to some local people in order to run the campaign for Parvez Elahi. The district nazim has a seasoned relationship with Chaudhries. The fact that Mumtaz Tamman is supporting Parvez Elahi combined with others makes it an interesting contest between Faiz Tamman and him.

    Recently the Talagang bar invited Justice Khwaja Sharif to address them. The honourable Justice did come to Talagang and the three serving judges in civil and additional session courts also attended the address. The three judges were, as a result, made OSD. This caused indignation to lawyers community and they collectively announced that they will have no connection with PML-Q. It is worth-mentioning that some prominent lawyer-politicians were members of Saleem Iqbal group whereas Saleem Iqbal (Tehsil Nazim) is active supporter of Parvez Elahi.

    Ch. Pervaiz Elahi has done a lot of development works for Distt. Chakwal and specially for Tehsil Talagang including roads, hospital, colleges, gas etc. So people of Talagang will definitely consider these things on the polling day. Its very interesting contest in this constituency between Faiz Taman and Ch. Pervaiz Elahi but at the moment Ch. Pervaiz Elahi have a definite edge over his rivals.

    i disagree with the predictions of pkpolitics on this constituency because the most influential person is Mr mumtaz tamman who is backing Q league therefore the position of ch pervaiz elahi is in front because the tamman vote is divided into three parts faiz,mansoor and mumtaz but the estabishment favour to chaudhry and mamtaz factor might snatch chaudry the constituency or if the votes of faiz and mansoor may not divide such that one of them over pass the other then the winner of those will definately make a competition with chaudhry

    I also disagree with the prediction of pkpolitics for NA-61 because in all the predictions they showed Faiz Taman ahead of Ch. Pervaiz Elahi while on the other hand all the major personalities of the area including Tehsil Nazim of Talagang is with Ch. Pervaiz Elahi. So it is not understndable on which basis pkpolitics are showing the Faiz Taman as winner. Its also fact that votes of Taman will be divided in Faiz and Mansoor and Ch. Pervaiz Elahi will take full advantage of that. Therefore I think Ch. Pervaiz Elahi is a definite winner in this constitutency.

    I think the prediction seems more valid today than before. Actually after the assassination of BB and the crises of wheat, electricity and gas, the people are highly disappointed. This is the first occassion that a person on-ground will see that a huge number of people are not going to vote behind the figureheads of families. This is why the influential people are going to be less influential on the polling day this time.

    Besides, in the above two posts, the Tamman factor is rather exaggerated. It is important but nowhere as important as being decisive.

    After the huge jalsa of Nawaz Sharif in Chakwal, Faiz Tamman is gaining more support and momentum. Parvez Ilahi has not been able to hold a single meeting in the constituency.

    Prospects of PML(N) victory here look quite promising.

    Pervez Elahi is expected to be mutual candidate of Q and PPP while PML-N is probably introducing Malik Saleem Iqbal ( former Tehsil Nazim of Talagang ) or Tamman.

    Tammans are gonna play a vital role in the success of either of these candidates

    Are there any updates about which side each of these Tammans (Faiz and Mansoor) going to lean?

    The good thing is that there is no condition for candidates to be 'graduate' this time around. So the tsunami of educated youth need not worry about disqualification of its candidate, the great Faiz Tamman.

    He will surely win again, like in 2008, to prove that people want change.

    @ Zufi

    I am operating under the divine revelation accepted as the direct word of God by all ilzamis....oops sorry... by all "educated" tsunami youth supporters of the "CHANGE". This divine revelation states that PTI will sweep elections by winning all NA and PA seats through out Pakistan. If that happens, surely Faiz Tamman will win. If not, 'bronze medal' for 3rd position is still an accomplishment!!!

    You almost got me!!

    But plenty of contenders for PMLN ticket in chakwal 60 , Malik majeed, general Qayum and poor Ayaz Amir. Any guess which way gonna go.

    Do you have also any news on NA 101 Gujranwala, justice Iftikhar Cheema. His son used to participate here in last elections.

    I have a feeling that Ayaz Amir will voluntary step away from the race and might not even apply for the ticket.

    Gen Abdul Qayyum is a front-runner for PML-N ticket in NA-60, but he needs to get blessings of Gen Abdul Majeed Malik to make it a lock. Ayaz Ameer is nowhere in reckoning and Sid seems right that he might not even bother applying for the ticket. PTI's 'prized wicket' here, ex-Nazim Sardar Ghulam Abbas seems to be having second thoughts about his future. Chaudhries of Gujrat have been giving him a lot of face time these days trying to convince him to contest as joint Q-league & PPP candidate. He is also rumored to have made overtures regarding what he can expect if he supports PML-N.

    NA-101 is certainly interesting and I hope Justice Cheema's son can shed more light on the situation. Apparently, the agreement between PML-N and Humkhayal group calls for retaining the winners of 2008. In that case, Hamid Nasir Chattha may either be compensated in Senate or his son Fayyaz nominated for next District Nazim. So if things go according to plan, Justice Cheema for PML-N wont face much competition.

    I have the feeling that Gen. Qayyum might contest from Taxilla since he has a very good reputation here; Gen., Majeed/his nominee might contest from Chakwal; its not clear whether Ghulam Abbas will join PMLQ-PPP or PMLN but i think he is soon flushing out of tsunami
