After many hesitations and delays, not least because of the brutal assassination of Benazir Bhutto and hundreds of her supporters, the Pakistani parliamentary elections are scheduled to go ahead on 18 February. These elections are different to any other ever held in Pakistan. We have received an appeal by three candidates who are sponsored by the Pakistan Trade Union Defence Campaign  and are standing on a clear socialist program. Please help support the work of the Pakistan Trade Union Defense Campaign by making a donation . For more information on the electoral work of PTUDC members click here .
