Dropout Predictions: What Will Happen in Pakistan in 2023? (2023)

This is satire and any accuracy of your predictions is purely coincidental..

History repeats itself everywhere, but probably not as violently as in Pakistan, where the lessons of the past are almost never learned.

There's a clear blueprint for the variety of news events you see each year, with political infighting, establishment gossip, trips to the IMF, all regular events, albeit with changing characters and faces.

Using a database compiled over 75 years and considering recent trends, we've taken a crystal ball to see what's in store for Pakistan in 2023.

Here are our best predictions for the coming year:

Government and opposition agree to cancel elections and start a talent competition

Protracted talks between the government and the opposition finally bore fruit, and both sides agreed to abandon the "useless" holding of general elections.

Instead of going to the polls, the political leaders decide to organize a talent show called "Woo the Boys" where all aspiring rulers will show their talents in front of a jury in hopes of winning the nomination.

"Anyway, it was an open secret that the real ruler is the one who is on the same side as you-know-who," said an acting minister.amanecer.comon condition of anonymity. “So why waste time asking the public for their opinion? Let's get down to business, cut out the middlemen and focus our energies on the real beach."

"Also, it doesn't matter if it's 1st, 2nd, 3rd, full gear, reverse, or neutral... boys are boys," he adds.

Following the announcement, a senior opposition leader is torn over which immortal art form to choose for the talent show. "I'm really confused. I've been told my whole life that I'm really good at dancing to music. But the other day it occurred to me that I can be the center of attention in a puppet show too. It's probably going to be hard to believe, but I can also say the most yes-yes in a minute."

"Let me do a quick demo: 'Foreign policy? yes ... budget? yes, yes… security issues? Yes Yes Yes!'"

Finmin-in-waiting changes philosophy during the interview

With the fate of the government mere minutes away from a crucial vote in the National Assembly, the opposition finance guru appears on a TV show for a live interview to deliver some final verbal smacks.

"This government has done nothing but throw Molotov cocktail after Molotov cocktail at the poor in this country," says the guru, who is expected to become the new finance minister if the opposition wins the next vote. . “The cabinet is full of heartless ministers who have mortgaged this land to the IMF. Inflation is always high and it all comes down to mismanagement by these thieves.”

Minutes later, with the government losing the vote and the opposition guru now being favored as the new finance minister, the finance guru makes a major U-turn on what action needs to be taken.

"The new government will have to raise gas prices because we don't produce enough oil and there is a global crisis," he says. "The new cabinet feels the pain of the citizens, but we have no other choice. What the IMF really wants is our own interest and we have to do as they say. Inflation is at an all-time high, but that's because of this raging global supercycle."

The government will acquire the services of Maula Jatt, Noori Nutt, to scare the dollar

Determined to keep the dollar's exchange rate under control but unable to inject funds into the market without angering the IMF, the government's financial genius hatches a plan to scare the dollar into submission leave.

"The current dollar exchange rate of 280 rupees is unnatural and has nothing to do with rising imports, falling exports or shrinking reserves," said the finance minister. “There is no need for structural reforms. That means the dollar needs to go down, and if it doesn't, we'll let go of Jatt and Nutt. This pair will bring the dollar back to its current levels of less than 200.

"'Oa dollar-aaan mai tera khoon pee jawanga (O dollar, I'll suck your blood)'" by Maula Jatt will be enough to bring down the dollar. And if that doesn't work, 'Nawa Aayaan Aee Sohneya (Are You New Here?)' by Noori Nutt certainly will."

When reminded that the IMF may not agree with his strategy, the minister says: “I don't care about the IMF. I told them, 'I'll give you an appropriate answer,' and that's my answer."

Disadvantaged head of government diagnosed with stage 4 escape Uenza disease

When things change and the ruling regime can no longer keep up with those in power, a senior government minister falls ill with a mysterious illness called Escape-Uenza, never seen or known before.

The disease, an absolute rarity for doctors in Pakistan but rumored to be treatable in London, is causing the minister's blood platelets to dwindle faster than the country's foreign exchange reserves.

The bedridden minister's deteriorating health is forcing the Supreme Court to let him leave the country, despite a list of corruption cases haunting him. However, the platelets miraculously reappear on their own once the minister's ambulance leaves Pakistani territory. The recovery is so incredible that the minister's ambulance is diverted to Milan, where he gives fitness classes to Cristiano Ronaldo and LeBron James.

Major TV network calls for biased 'freedom of reporting'

A self-proclaimed "number one in everything" television network is organizing a protest to lament the shrinking space journalists have to report with clear bias.

"What we're seeing now is worse than Zia," says the president of Reporters Without Credibility (RWC). "Our voices, however partisan, are being silenced."

Patriotic Facebook commenter angry at 'negative portrayal of Pakistan'
