While the editorial admits that it would be challenging for any new government to make substantive achievements in the first 100 days, it still goes on to say that the achievements of the ruling party were “modest at best”.

It further falsely claims that “the continuation of a bruising style of politics has brought the PTI rulers in conflict with the opposition in parliament and has kept the coalition government in a more precarious political position than it ought to be.” That is disingenuous at best.
