The paper analyses the fairness of earlier eight elections with a brief commentary on the pre-poll, polling day and post-poll phases, based on a “Rigging Test.” The test, based on a comprehensive definition of rigging, provides guidelines and criteria for scoring from “High” and “Medium” to “Low” level of Rigging. The detailed analysis contained in the paper reveals that the 1970, 1977, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1993, 1997 and 2002, all have had high, medium or low levels of rigging in the three phases of elections i.e., pre-poll, polling day and post –poll rigging. Looking ahead at the 2008 General Election, only 15% of the population expects that the forthcoming elections will be completely free and fair; the remaining are divided between those who expect election to be rigged (53%) and others who say they cannot give a definite answer at this point (32%).The movement for “rule of law” is the true force to defeat Electoral Rigging in all its forms.
