PILDAT Report on State of Electoral Reforms in Pakistan has been prepared to present the status of the electoral reforms taking place for the upcoming General Elections of May 2013. PILDAT has been monitoring the implementation of Election Commission of Pakistan’s 5 Year Strategic Plan since October 2011. In addition to commenting on key issues likely to impact General Election 2013, the report carries progress review of Election Commission of Pakistan’s 5 Year Strategic Plan as on March 2013. The ECP 5 Year Strategic Plan outlines some of the reform initiatives that are planned by the ECP. While the ECP has the responsibility to implement the 5-year strategic plan, it is the responsibility of the citizens to monitor the progress of implementation and raise questions where the progress is slow or stalled. PILDAT’s effort in the form of citizens’ monitoring is not an effort in finger-pointing and instead it is designed to be helpful to the ECP in overcoming obstacles in the way of timely implementation of its 5-Year Strategic Plan.
