    I don’t have any expectations because it is a weak government. They were on their way to forming a very strong federal government, but once the military establishment realized that they were forming a majority, the system “crashed” and their seats reduced from 124 to 11

    As a result, they have had to buy the loyalties independents who can blackmail them in the future.

    If they oppose any laws and bills that PTI passes in the future, PTI will be handicapped.

    Imran Khan and his supporters are too naive to realize this now, but in due time, everything will unfold.

    Politics is not a game of cricket and their arrogance and self-righteous attitude will backfire.

    I think our military has some amazing, state of the art technology which they use to extract people’s brain cells rendering smart people stupid.

    Of course some were stupid to begin with.

    I do have similar doubts but I don't see military giving PPP seats. PPP is the probably the most anti military party and with them Pti can pass laws that military might not like. A seasoned politician could probably play ppp and pmln against each other to get even constitutional amendments passed so I don't think Pti is in that bad a position though it will be tough.

    The two interrelated things that need improvement for Pakistan are the economy and security.

    The metric for improvements in the economy is the growth of modern industries, which itself can be judged by the composition of exports.

    While the situation of India is by no means ideal, it does share many similar characteristics with Pakistan like geography, ethnicity etc. So India is a good comparison.

    If the composition of Pakistan's exports looks more like India's over time, then it means its economy is developing. If modern industries don't develop, then Pakistan will keep going back to the IMF or China for bailouts.

    If PTI's government is able to curb the Army, then the economy will develop. Early signs are that it won't, instead it will chase slogans like "return looted wealth from abroad", "NS is a thief and the cause of our problems" etc.

    PTI was handicapped in KPK as well in its first term but yet managed to deliver on most of their promises.

    5 years down the line and they have a 2/3 majority! If they can mimic the same at national level I have no doubt come 2023 - PTI will win with a 2/3 majority.

    The first priority must be to stabilise the dire economy. With improving security and cleaner government - it will be easier to attract foreign investment and reduce youth unemployment.

    Expanding the tax base is another priority - Pakistan has a low tax revenue to GDP ratio by international standards.

    Reforming declining state institutions like PIA and Railways and introducing merit will also be a positive step.

    Truth is that you have no clue about Pakistan, just because you copied and pasted something off an internet and add "Army", it does not make it a fact.

    And what you have stated with your elementary copied and paste job is a well know fact, obviously productivity and exports has to increase for Economy to do better, it is as elementary concept as learning ABCD

    There was either more rigging than I expected, or I credited the Punjabi voter with more intelligence than justifiable.

    Lame excuses. Just because your favorite did not get elected does not mean that you start questioning someone's intelligence. Instead you should admit that you were wrong. Even PMLN leadership were not making such tall claims before election and were convinced that it will be a tough fight in Punjab.

    Reading a few articles through your biased lenses cannot make you an expert on any topic. Anyways you can carry on with your Times Now-esque propaganda.

    That is not to say they shouldn't focus on other sectors.

    PPP and PMLN were pathetic in last 30 years and the quality of life for common man went downwards so the benchmark for PTI is not high. Even if they do little work that improves the life of common man they will win next elections.

    I will give them 1 year before making strong opinions. Ab chance mila hai to we should give them time and should not make a pahaar over minute things. Lets see how things goes.

    I think @Mamoon will like number 2. A number of times you claimed that the PTI will do exactly the same as the Nooras and PPP. This alone will save around 30 crore each year.

    Helpline ‘1099’, website for human rights to be revived soon: Mazari

    Minister for Human Rights, Shireen Mazari says helpline “1099”, and a website for human rights, would be revived in a couple of days.

    Talking to a private news channel, she said a briefing would be given in next cabinet meeting about laws regarding children rights.

    The Minister said government will provide all possible help to resolve problems being faced by Pakistani prisoners languishing in foreign jails.

    She said all stakeholders would be taken into confidence regarding missing persons cases.

    About violence against women and children, she said legal actions are needed to be taken to curb the menace.

    Commenting on violations committed by Indian forces in Occupied Kashmir, she stressed the need to look into the matters of human right violations against Kashmiri people.

    Can't wait to see this kicking off. It won't get as much coverage as the other things, but climate change is probably the most serious issue that Pakistan needs to fight against.

    It is commendable that PTI is wasting no time. If this was Nawaz's government they would still be celebrating. I have seen more discussion on core issues in the first 1 month of PTI than the entire 5-10 years of "democracy".

    He is just auctioning the unnecessary cars - not every government owned car. Helicopter is needed in government you can't equate these two things.

    All media regulatory authorities to be merged into one top body: information minister

    Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday announced that after reviewing the role of Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) and the Press Council of Pakistan (PCP), it has been decided that all regulatory authorities will be merged into one top body — Pakistan Media Regulatory Authority.

    While speaking to the media, Chaudhry said that in coordination with "our media friends", the government has decided to do away with Pemra and PCP, and constitute a new body "which will not only look after electronic media but also print and cyber media [social media]".

    "There should be one regulatory authority to look at all mediums, and the same laws and censors should apply across the board," he added.

    According to Chaudhry, this proposal would also save the government's resources. "All authorities will be merged into one body of professionals, which will also include media representatives."

    He then referred to the Supreme Court's remarks during a case today regarding media having its own code of ethics, saying that would also be taken into consideration.

    "In the coming days, you will see major changes in the information ministry, regulatory bodies, and Pakistan Television (PTV)."

    Last week, the information minister announced that the PTI-led government had lifted political censorship on state-run news organisations.

    In a statement posted on Twitter, the minister had said that both PTV and Radio Pakistan would now enjoy complete editorial independence over the content they produce.

    The minister had said that far-reaching changes were being introduced in the information ministry, expressing confidence that the changes would be visible within the next three months.

    ECC orders power sector audit, warns electricity defaulters of legal repercussions

    The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the federal cabinet on Monday decided to conduct a financial audit of the entire power sector as part of a series of planned measures to cut down its losses, sources within the ECC said.

    During a meeting chaired by Finance Minister Asad Umar, the ECC decided that it would introduce prepaid metres and bills for electricity defaulters.

    The committee, according to sources, agreed that whosoever — including the PM house — won't clear their electricity bill would face disconnections, while their metres would be uninstalled within three months.

    Furthermore, the ECC, during today's meeting, decided to create a separate committee for the privatization of K-Electric.

    The committee also expressed grave concerns regarding the Rs480 billion circular debt payments, and vowed to identify and take legal action against those responsible for financial misconduct in this regard.

    The creation of a pension plan for railway employees and a mechanism to fulfill fertilizer requirement during Rabi season were also discussed.

    The first meeting of the newly reconstituted ECC had taken place last week. While no conclusive decisions were taken, the meeting appeared to be setting the stage for some serious business — to make fertilizer companies return Rs10 billion windfalls to the economy and to address the root cause of power sector circular debt.

    The government is currently analyzing the economic, legislative situation at the moment.

    We will see policy formation during next month or so. The policy implementation will start after another 2 months imo.

    So, we should actually start analyzing after a month or so.

    Does PTI have technology ministry or some dedicated minister whose job is to look after Paks tech community? Alot of Pakistani's in silicon valley can help bridge the gap and bring much needed tech investment to Pakistan. Pakistan has immense potential to excel in engineering and tech if it gets the right people to lobby.

    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s textile and clothing products exports revived in August from a year ago, according to the data released by the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) on Wednesday.

    The revival in exports was partially attributable to cash subsidy offered under prime minister’s exports enhancement package. Furthermore, in the mini-budget, government has reduced duties on raw materials to boost exports.

    Data for the value-added textile sector showed a positive growth as exports of ready-made garments went up 8.85pc in value and increased by 26.52pc in quantity.

    Towel exports posted a 12.14pc growth in August while that of cotton cloth increased by 7.14pc in value during the period under review.

    Among primary commodities, cotton yarn exports witnessed a 5.34pc increase while export of yarn other than cotton recorded a 16.93pc decline.

    Exports of made-up articles, excluding towels, went up by 8.36pc, those of art, silk and synthetic textile exports up by 5.31pc and tents, canvas and tarpaulin went up by 3.71pc while proceeds from raw cotton dipped by 68.98pc during the period under review.

    The total export proceeds registered a growth of 5.05pc to $3.66bn in July-Aug from $3.48bn over the corresponding period of last year of which non-textile exports were up by 6.8pc to $1.4bn.

    PBS data showed a mammoth rise of 143pc in exports of petroleum products, which along with petroleum crude and naphtha, led the increase in overall sector sales.

    However, carpets and rugs exports during July-Aug declined by 4.25pc against same period last year. Foreign sales of sports goods went down by 9.97pc, with football exports dropping by 1.23pc as well. Tanned leather exports also shrank by 21.42pc in the period first two months of current fiscal year.

    Leather products’ exports decreased by 3.37pc and footwear exports rose by 10.9pc in July-Aug 2018 from a year ago.

    According to PBS data, exports of surgical goods and medical instruments also declined by 4.71pc, with exports in engineering goods sector decreasing by 26.51pc during the first two months.
