Government of PakistanFawad Chaudhry stresses on fully empowered local government system

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhary Fawad Hussain has stressed that a fully empowered local government system is imperative to address the problems of the people at the grassroots level.

In his address at a National Conference on Future of Local Government in Islamabad on Tuesday, the minister noted that this is a futuristic system and is also a demand of our Constitution.


Therefore, every person having political sagacity should endeavor for the establishment of the local government system, he added.

The information minister regretted that the local government systems established in Punjab and Sindh in the past were not fully empowered as the funds were not transferred to them.

Fawad Chaudhary pointed out that under the 18th amendment, powers were devolved to the provinces but these were not further transferred to the local bodies.

The minister said that the local bodies are important to improve the governance system.
