The struggling democracy in Pakistan which marked the second consecutive transfer of power thru recent ballot is, in reality, more secure and solid than believed otherwise because of its built-in autonomous features.
In 2010 Pakistan parliament, to enhance the country’s democratic choice has given its four provinces more local powers in tackling their regional issues. In areas of education, healthcare, agriculture, and many other local matters affecting the daily lives of people, Pakistan’s central government does not dictate or interfere in formulating provincial policies and governance.
In its autonomous structure for its provinces lies the democratic strength of Pakistan.
