Political Career

Initial Career

  • Starting his political career with Pakistan People’s party in the 1970s, he later joined Pakistan Muslim League N. He remained a member of PPP from 1970 to 1988. In 1990 General elections he fought for the member of the Provincial assembly while associating himself with Islami Jamhoori Ittihad and fortunately won the seat. He served in that party only for 2 years and later joined PMLN. After completing his tenure, he again became MPA in 1993 General Elections from PP-4 (Rawalpindi-IV) Constituency and ended his time till the completion of tenure.
  • Raja Basharat contested 1997 General Elections on the seat of Provincial Assembly and once again faced victory. He appointed on the most significant ministries, including Additional Minister Portfolio of Culture and Information. After the completion of tenure, he left PMLN and joined hands with Pakistan Muslim League Q. He remained a candidate of this party till 2018.

Joined PMLQ

He ran for the first time in 2002 General Elections as a member of PMLQ, but unfortunately, this time, he couldn’t win the seat and lost to his opponent. In 2003 he was given the seat of an advisor to the Punjab Chief Minister of that time. In 2003 By-poll elections, he again made an entry and made a member of the Provincial Assembly from PP-110 (Gujrat-III) Constituency. During his tenure, he functioned as Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Law till the tenure completion.

2008 General Elections

2008 didn’t remain successful for him as he lost all the seats from whom he contested elections. He ran for the National Assembly seat from NA-54 (Rawalpindi–V) Constituency but lost to his competitor. In the same elections, he went for the Provincial Assembly seat from another constituency but again suffered defeat.

2013 General Elections

In 2013 he couldn’t win the seat of the National Assembly that he fought from PP-14 (Rawalpindi-IX) Constituency. It seems like PMLQ didn’t remain lucky for him as he couldn’t win any General Elections since joining PMLQ. Later he left the party and became a member of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf.
