Local Body Elections On Non-Party Basis In Punjab – Corruption?

Local government elections 2012Punjab Government has announced that Local Body Elections will be held on non-party basis. Punjab cabinet has also approved the Punjab Local Government Bill 2012.

It looks that PML-N Punjab Government is afraid of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and that is the main reason behind this move to conduct Local Body Elections on non-party basis.

Elections on non party basis give the way to the contestants for blackmailing political parties as by winning seats they demand huge money from political parties to join their team. General elections of 1985 in Pakistan were on non-party basis and that experience was very bad for Pakistan.
