Over the past 2 decades Pakistan has been through many turbulent times, non more so than the last few months, which we have all witnessed. The prospects and potential of this country have been transformed by the energy of the people of Pakistan. Now we face new challenges and opportunities. We must deal with them with the same clear thinking and robustness.

Public Services

Previous governments have failed to deliver on the public services. The result is that the basic facilities of life are still beyond the approach of common man. It is imperative that the issues concerning their public services are dealt with. The institutions that hold this country together, and even its independence as a nation, are under threat.

Common Approach

They need a Common Approach because the potential of this country is huge and cannot be realized if they have successive governments that simply spend its inheritance and squander the countries wealth on inefficiencies.


The PAT intends to lead that Common Approach. Their principles and traditions mean that they are in an ideal position to do so. Throughout their election campaign they will be highlighting their policies and fighting hard to serve the people of Pakistan in the way a true democratic government should. A comprehensive national educational policy to streamline the education system in accordance with the demands of the present age will be implemented. The government of Pakistan Awami Tehreek will work out policies for the enhancement of national resources and riddance of debt-ridden economy. They will establish public-private partnership and reduce red tape. Industry will be set free to compete. Equality, inclusiveness, putting people first will provide basic facilities of life and equal job opportunities..
