As the world stands in unison to celebrate the International Day of Democracy; Pakistan reiterates its resolve to nurture and strengthen democracy by Islamic precepts and the vision of the founder of the nation. The Constitution of Pakistan is glorified with democratic principles and a parliamentary form of government. Democracy is as much a process as a goal, and only with full participation and support of the international community, democratic institutions, civil society and people who are the ultimate stakeholders, can the ideal of democracy be converted into reality and enjoyed by everyone, everywhere.
Pakistan Parliament stands firm on the commitment that true democracy is the only way forward for inclusive decision-making and policy formulation, particularly for minorities and vulnerable segments of society. True representation of people, fairness, equality, social justice and rule of law are at the heart of any democratic nation and Pakistan strives to garner these values through its Constitution that guarantees them.
Chairman Senate observed that Upper House of the Parliament continues to strive for upholding democratic values which is playing a robust role by guarding the rights of the under-privileged. He said that the Upper House is actively promoting unity in diversity and keeping the spirit of national cohesion alive for the national development prosperity.
