The Young Politicians’ Fellowship Programme (YPFP) has been conceived and implemented by Pakistan Institute of Legislative Development And Transparency – PILDAT under Tabeer – Consolidating Democracy in Pakistan programme (Tabeer – CDIP).
PILDAT and Tabeer-Consolidating Democracy in Pakistan is supporting the democratic processes in Pakistan by strengthening the capacity of the country’s political parties to be more effective, accountable and responsive to the needs of Pakistani people.
There are support institutions for training the human resource of other political institutions but no such facility is available to Pakistan’s young political workers and leaders. Political parties have realised this and have been incredibly cooperative with Tabeer – CDIP in implementation of YPFP. Few political parties in Pakistan have been organising poll watchers / polling agents training programmes at a limited scale. However, there are no internal training programmes for party officials. In this backdrop, despite its limitations, YPFP has attempted to bridge the gap.
