The objective of this discussion paper is to contribute to the debate to improve the levels of electoral participation of citizens, especially communities such as Women, Youth and Non-Muslims with traditionally lower levels of electoral participation. The paper especially focuses on the effective participation of Women, Youth and Non-Muslims in the electoral process in the country. The various reforms proposals included in the paper have been gleaned from various group discussions that PILDAT held with Parliamentary groups on Women Issues, Youth and Inter-faith Relations, representatives of major political parties and through consultative workshops held at 4 provincial capitals of the country involving regional stakeholders. PILDAT hopes that the paper will provide the necessary background information for concerned stakeholders to play a more proactive role to increase and improve electoral participation of Women, Youth and Non-Muslim Communities.

PILDAT would like to acknowledge the support provided by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) / United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) under the project “Strengthening Electoral Processes to Ensure Greater Participation.” in producing the discussion paper.
