Altaf Shakoor Advocates for Economic Focus and Electoral Reforms in Pakistan

Karachi, Altaf Shakoor, the Chairman of the Pasban Democratic Party (PDP), emphasized the critical need for prioritizing the economy and implementing electoral reforms to ensure the prosperity and democratic stability of Pakistan. In a recent statement, Shakoor highlighted the importance of a strong economy, the need for a proportional electoral system, and the role of youth in shaping the future, urging all political parties and election winners to collaborate towards national interests over personal gains.

According to Pasban Press Information Cell, Shakoor congratulated the winners of the recent elections, urging them to dedicate their efforts to the nation’s and the country’s welfare. He stressed the significance of moving beyond a broad-based national government to focus on economic stability and electoral reforms, which he believes are essential for the nation’s progress. Shakoor pointed out that the current political and economic crises could only be overcome through the united efforts of major political parties and winning independent candidates, focusing on the economy over political disputes.

The PDP Chairman also underlined the importance of acknowledging and respecting political dissent, as demonstrated by the success of independent candidates, which signifies a healthy democratic environment. He called attention to the crucial role played by the youth in recent elections, indicating that political parties should not ignore their voices and aspirations.

Shakoor called for immediate electoral reforms, specifically the introduction of a proportional electoral system to replace the current one, which he argues serves the interests of major mafias rather than the common people. Ensuring that the voice of every voter is heard and respected was highlighted as a key step towards developing a healthy and sustainable democracy.

Furthermore, Shakoor pointed to the economy as a foundational element for national independence, cautioning against the continued reliance on international lenders such as the World Bank and the IMF. He advocated for investment in agriculture, irrigation, and solar energy sectors, proposing the installation of rooftop solar panel systems in every home and the construction of numerous large and small dams to utilize water-saving technologies for irrigating barren lands.
