Islamabad, Jun 20, 2013
According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 62% of Pakistanis believe that the present federal government will perform better than the previous one.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Overall, in your opinion, will the performance of the present federal government be better, worse or not different than the previous government?” Responding to this, 62 % said the performance would be better, 16% said it would be worse and 22% said there would be no difference.
A comparison of answers between respondents across the four provinces produced interesting results. Whereas 74% of the respondents from Punjab felt the new federal government would perform better, only 34% and 45% of the respondents from KPK and Sindh respectively felt the same. However, like in Punjab, optimism was high in Balochistan, where 82% of the respondents said the new federal government would perform better than the previous one.
Question: “Overall, in your opinion, will the performance of the present federal government be better, worse or not different than the previous government?
