I think that the solution to the deadlock between the government and the two protesting parties can be resolved by this simple idea. I think that Pakistan can have a referendum, under the armed forces and rangers, which should ask only one question which is, whether the Elections of May 2013 were rigged or not and, if the answer is in the affirmative then the Prime Minister should dissolve the assembly, set up a new caretaker government and hold fresh elections, under a new Election Commission. Moreover, before the dissolution of the assembly, the parliament must also pass a bill, for the election reforms, as per the consensus of all the stake holders. These proposals including referendum under the constitution will tell us the truth once and for all.
