Pakistan Political Party Program Evaluation
In 2007 Democracy International evaluated USAID’s political party assistance in Pakistan. The DI team conducted interviews in Islamabad, Karachi, and Lahore, including meetings with party leaders and activists from North West Frontier and Baluchistan provinces. The team met with representatives of all significant parties, including Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q), Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Muhajir Qaumi Movement (MQM), Jamiat Ulema Islam (JUI-F), Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), Awami National Party (ANP), and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI). The team also conducted interviews with program implementers, civil society activists, academics, journalists, donor representatives and other democracy and governance program implementers. Through these interviews, the team was able to offer comprehensive recommendations to USAID on political party programming.
