Introduction by Dr Tahir ul Qadri Chairman Pakistan Awami Tehreek 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. 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 our public services are dealt with. The institutions that hold this country together, and even its independence as a nation, are under threat. We need a Common Approach because the potential of this country is huge and cannot be realised if we have successive governments that simply spend its inheritance and squander the countries wealth on inefficiencies. The PAT intends to lead that Common Approach. Our principles and traditions mean that we are in an ideal position to do so. Throughout our election campaign we will be highlighting our 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. We will establish public-private partnership and reduce redtape. Industry will be set free to compete. Equality, inclusiveness, putting people first will provide basic facilities of life and equal job opportunities.. PAT spans all four corners of the globe in over 86 countries. We have an equal participation of the youth, women, farmers, traders, employees and minorities and all the work we have undertaken has been based on the ideologies of uniting Pakistanis at home and abroad. I have over the last 30 years worked hard to promote Pakistan at home and abroad. We are an inclusive party with a proven track record on social reform. We have placed parliamentary candidates of the highest calibre in most constituencies. Candidates from all diverse backgrounds will be contesting their seats for the PAT. I believe in giving the people of Pakistan a clean, fresh start but to do that I will need your support. On October 10th 2002 you will be given the opportunity to have that say in your country's future. On October 10th 2002 vote for the Pakistan Awami Tehreek.
