Political School of Pakistan
Pakistan was established on the basis of
democratic movement. Today there are
over 280 political parties registered with
the Election Commission of Pakistan.
Leading political parties have leaders but
above 55 years of age. There is lack of
competent young leaders in every party.
Women and minorities must be trained
on electoral process, participatory
approach and service delivery. Concept of
Political School of Pakistan is not new.
Several organizations including PILDAT
have been advocating for it. ECP and
UNDP must establish Political Schools all
across Pakistan including FATA for
effective and result-oriented democracy
and sustainable economic development.
