Unsolved issues loom ahead of Pakistan polls

As elections approach, many basic issues, like food security and power cuts, are nowhere near to being solved.

    Pakistan is scheduled to hold general elections in May this year. Around 80 million people are eligible to vote.

    Although security may dominate the headlines, for many voters food security, power cuts, the country's huge debt and its lack of foreign currency reserves are among key issues that need to be tackled.

    As elections approach, voters will have a lot to consider before casting their ballot.
