LAW501 - Legal & Regulatory Environment of Business Assignment

Issues Addressed by this Act
The election results in Pakistan have never reflected the true will of the Pakistani people. The voting system is a myth and only selected people get the electoral seats. The bitter truth is the fact that the elections in Pakistan have never been free and fair. The feudal lords, bureaucrats and the rich have dominated the commoners and used unfair means to get elected and come to the power. They have exploited the poor and illiterate masses and even used force to get their votes. There have been bogus votes scandals in the past almost every time with the current voting system. The elections have always been rigged by the party in power. And most importantly the voter turnout in elections has always been drastically low, primarily because people don't believe in the system. This act will safeguard the interests of the people of Pakistan by empowering the intellectuals, educated and responsible citizens. It will ensure free and fair elections in Pakistan by revamping the existing infrastructure and introducing checks and balances that will eliminate the possibility of bogus votes scandal and election vote rigging. It will also grant rights to the overseas citizens of Pakistan to exercise their voting rights.
