(Concept Note)


After the completion of five
years of elected government in Pakistan, the country is now preparing for next
general elections to be held in May 2013. The political parties have started
their campaigns with the launching of party manifestos, considered to be an
integral part of campaigning and important policy document to outline the
vision of party.


Manifestos launched by various
political parties, promise a bright future and cover most of interest areas of
people of Pakistan. However, the question of implementation is still unanswered
in respective manifestos, except the statements of implementation will.
Therefore, it is high time to debate the manifestos of each party with people’s
perspective. SDPI is holding a series of seminars to discuss manifestos of
various political parties in Pakistan. This seminar is fifth of the series with
a particular focus on Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) manifesto. The
seminar would also discuss the relevance of manifestos in political dynamics in
Pakistan and how pro-people development agenda can be achieved through
political manifestos.
