LG Elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa A Proposal

Local governments are recognized as engines of growth and development in the modern world. National Reconstruction Bureau facilitated and strengthened local government elections and system in Pakistan. Last year after May 2013 elections, Supreme Court of Pakistan directed elected provincial governments to hold local government elections by the end of February 2014. Owing to acute law and order situation, provincial governments claimed that it was difficult to hold elections. However, Government of Balochistan held elections last year. Lately Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa led by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has announced for the local government elections to be held in April 2014.

It is a good political growth but there has to take several measures to hold free, fair and transparent elections throughout Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Experts still have bad memories of general elections in Haripur and Swat. Candidates filed petitions for repolling in these constituencies. Female voters’ turnout of NWFP in local government 2005 elections was the lowest i.e. 21%. It is key responsibility of government to provide security to the election candidates and voters. NGOs, Election Commission of Pakistan and donors particularly Democracy Reporting International must educate voters for higher turnout. Pashto-Urdu Election Booklet must be printed and distributed in March 2014. Primary school teachers especially females should not be used on the polling day. Hopefully Pakistan Tehreek-eInsaf would be able to hold first free and fair LG elections in April 2014.
