Pakistani Democracy, Electoral System, Pakistani Voter, Transparency, Accountability and People-Empowerment


The spirit of true or bad political system can be judged on the basis of transparency, accountability and people-empowerment of its Electoral System. Socio-Political philosophy sketches a candidate for state-governing services should be chaste, learned, genial & well-wisher of humanity and a voter should not be a constrained one.

In Pakistan, by rules, an election candidate can contest even from jail, in many constituencies, being too old to death or publically alleged, corrupt, absconder. They need to win election on the power of wealth so after win, they looted public properties. Gradually, due to this coercing atmosphere, almost majority of elected members become quite selfish. Contrarily, a voter cannot vote from Jail, more than one even being so learned or capable or poise. A voter has to caste vote for any one of constant rather he/she does not like them or even a voter can’t caste against them. So it is declared that Pakistani voter is constrained.

Ceasing of these candidature gangs and removal of constrained-ness of Pakistani voters is the most essential phase of Pakistani Politics for a transparent, accountable and people-empowered democracy in Pakistan which is analyzed through Islamic Injunctions also.

It is needed to develop such innovative Electoral System in which, a selfish person can’t be a contestant and a voter should not be constrained or bound. After a thorough study of electoral frameworks of developed countries, an apparition of revolutionary electoral system has been framed in this article.
