We are making history. We have
achieved another democratic transition successfully. Parliament has completed
two full tenures without any hindrance, and two successive elected government
have completed their terms but unfortunately no Prime Minister could do that. As
Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) takes the leading position in General Election
2018, it is likely to face multiple challenges as a new ruling party.So, Khan
should prepare himself mentally and institutionally to face the situation.
The first and foremost will be dealing with opposition parties which declared
election as equivocal and inequitable. As Khan has already set the trend of
erroneous allegations, demonstrations and pickets.
The next big challenge is socio-economic problems. List of economic challenges
is very roomy including slow GDP growth, high financial deficit, a troubling
balance of payment lean tax collection, lower exports, rising inflation and
higher public debits. In the same way social problems are also large in scale.
Poverty, illiteracy, over population, unemployment, hygienes issues, extremism,
sectarianism and many others are social problems. Besides this water scarcity is
also a huge challenge.
Next comes reformation. Khan pledged multiple times during his election speeches
to introduce reforms in all civil institutions like Police, NAB, FBR etc. To
prove himself a progressive demagogue Khan needs to take bold steps to make
institutions non political, transparent and efficient. Endeavors must do to
curtail corruption and other institutional problems.
Next in queue is International Challenges including Foreign Policy. World is so
rapidly changing, new blocks are being made and International arena is moving
towards multipolarity system. Terrorism and Holy wars are a threat to
International peace. Besides traditional, non traditional issues like Global
warming and climate change need proper attention. In this scenario new
government needs to revisit Pakistan's foreign policy and should try to make
friendly and peaceful relations with all countries especially with neighbours
and Muslim countries and to preserve National Interest. Problem of FATF list
should be solved on priorities bases. Pakistan has suffered a lot economically
and socially by terrorism and ongoing 'War Against Terrorism'. Peaceful
Afghanistan means peaceful Pakistan. Due to its geographical position Pakistan
has to play a vital rule in International issues either in case of Afghanistan
or any other issue in South Asia. So, we should keep ourselves ready for coming
Last but not least, political stability is necessary and crucial for Pakistan's
prosperity. Political parties and other stake holders including military should
be on table to solve out challenges. We need stabilize political and economic
stability to mover further. Economy and security go shoulder by shoulder. So our
law enforcement agencies have to play a significant rule in this situation.
Fiasco of political and economic system would lead us toward devastation and
debacle. Time has come to move forward and in right direction. We need to prove
ourselves hero, not a villain.
