Talking specifically about Pakistan, there are dozens of parties who are claiming to be the right leader of the government that will be established in 2018. But are you sure which one is the best eligible for your vote?

1. Understanding Different Candidates:

Assessing an individual person is of great importance the leader of a political party is the core of all the actions that a party takes. In the simplest definition, we can say that a political party is a group of people, who have gathered on a platform because they shared similar ideas and priority in serving the community. A person who is leading a specific party should be your concern. You need to find the history and the current plans of the leader and find out what they are going to do in the future if they get elected.

To find which party or the leader is the best, you need to study their manifesto, what philosophies they are carrying and what are their priorities. These things can be witnessed in the pre-election campaigns and their previous performance (in case the party has already been elected or been a part of politics for a long time). Check if the party candidates have fulfilled their commitments or promises that they have made before the previous elections. Are they repeating the same agenda they communicated last time but did not fulfill?

Find answers to what motto they are carrying with them. You can find all these details by reading journals, news and the current statements and goals of a specific political party.

2. Checking the Past Performance of Different Candidates

Don’t just stop on one, explore and study every single candidate that is willing to be a part of the government and find out which one of these many candidates is the most eligible for your vote. You can find information about any party by visiting their social media pages and reading their past election campaign material that you can access by any mean, over the internet, in the past newspapers available online or any such news source. Study and find what different candidates have to offer you, what their priorities are and how they are different from other players in the coming elections.

Be critical, do not be biased. Do not make a decision until you are not clear with the achievements and lacking of every single party and their agendas.

3. What Are the Upcoming Agendas of Participants?

By now you are done with clearing up the picture that sketches the past and the performance of different parties & candidates who are expecting to have your vote in coming elections. You may have come with shortlisted candidates in your sheet. It is now the time to look for what they are holding in present.

In Pakistan, finding out this future agenda is simple. In Pakistan, all the political parties that are willing to take part in elections are supposed to share their 100 days agenda to the government authorities. This 100 days agenda is published and you find all the details on the internet or at any news source. It is the best way to have a clear picture of what different political parties are up to.

Once you have reviewed these priorities of different parties, you will be clear to decide which one is the most suitable for your vote in coming elections. However, there is much more you still need to work on.

4. Who Are the Prominent Members/Leaders of the Party?

As by now you have reached to the two or three political personals who, according to you have a considerable background, acceptable performance, and an appreciative agenda for future working, it’s the time to study those 2-3 parties and find out who is managing or leading the specific party. What is their role and what is their background?

Far before the elections are conducted, each party decides to give tickets to the people who are willing to acquire certain positions in the government. These people are known to the public and can be from the general public. You can find information about them and their popularity over the internet. Social media can be of great help to know what people think, believe or say about the specific person.

5. What is the Current Need of the Country?

You are a part of this country, you have been living here since birth and will be living here till death. You can not deny the fact that you are a part of this system and anything that happens to this system will have an impact on you. Are you willing to ignore what can happen to you or your loved ones while living in this country?
