Empower People at The Grassroots Through Local Government
Imran Khan and his team from PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) promised us:
We will transform Pakistan by devolving power and decision-making to the people through an empowered local government.
Local development in villages and small towns in Pakistan is controlled by MPAs and MNAs, or by the bureaucracy, who do not want to cede authority and relevance.
We will devolve small infrastructure initiatives to village councils by transferring resources and decision-making power to the people of Pakistan by scaling out our successful KP model across Sindh, Punjab, and Baluchistan.
Learning from our KP experience, we will further refine the LG structure, and introduce a city government model, where the directly elected Mayor will be responsible to deliver on all interrelated urban city matters.
