Importing lists from List of political parties in Pakistan and Politics of Pakistan#Political_parties_and_leaders


Parties are listed alphabetically, and for factions, only the first has a link to an article:

Jamaat-e-Islami or JI [Qazi Hussain AHMED]

Tehrik-e-Jafria Pakistan or TJP [Allama Sajid NAQVI]
and Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan, Noorani faction or JUP/NO

Green Party Pakistan[edit]

I've added this party to the list since they recently participated in the formation of the Asia-Pacific Green Network but I'm not sure what their actual name is. I've seen it in English variously as Green Party Pakistan, Pakistan Greens, Green Party of Pakistan. I'm also not sure how big a group they are or whether they have legal recognition within Pakistan.

Please find out some more information. Electionworld 06:44, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

Righto. I'll add more detail as I can. The variation in the English name may be due to slight differences in translation. Deirdre 17:01, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

I found nothing about Labor Party Pakistan Wikipedia. It is fastest growing and most active left wing political party in Pakistan. please visit its website:

Pakistan Social Democratic Platform[edit]

Could somebody else then Jamilahmadgondal confirm the existence of the PSDP as a political party in Pakistan. I visited its website and couldn't find an indication that it is a political party. Electionworld 11:01, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Pakistan Social Democratic Platform seeks Pakistani Members around the World. Strive for Social Reforms and Social Justice in Pakistan. For more information please visit the website [[1]] Please don't remove it from any list, its members are practical and virtual. Its branches will spread around the globe as it seeks members. Pakistan Social Democratic Platform was formed in August 11, 2003 as group. There are many Political groups and parties in Pakistan, those could not participate in any Election for many reasons. Pakistan Social Democratic Platform is under a process, as it seeks members. As the numbers will raise, it will be ready to do so. Please don't pass any personal comments, let it works. Strive for Social Reforms and Social Justice in Pakistan.

I asume this text was from Jamilahnadgonda. He really convinced me that it is not (yet) a party. I deleted it, and if this will reverted by him again, I will ask to block him and protect the page. Electionworld 06:42, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Pakistan Social Democratic Platform as Pakistan Socialist Democratic Party[edit]

Pakistan Social Democratic Platform is now converted into a Political Party named as Pakistan Socialist Democratic Party Its members raised over sixty at Yahoo! and MSN together. Could it be possible to add its name in the List of political parties in Pakistan? From: jamilahmadgondal

As far as I am concerned, no. It is still not more than a virtual organisation (only Yahoo! and MSN). Electionworld 12:24, 11 Jun 2005 (UTC), although is part of the PTI.

Pakistan Socialist Democratic Party members are its branches, those spread around the globe. Wikipedia Administrator will add this party in the List of Political Parties in Pakistan.

Which administrator? Please first convince people. I am not convinced. Electionworld 15:29, 11 Jun 2005 (UTC)

The PPP is technically distinct from the PPPP[edit]

People often confuse the PPP and the PPPP, because the latter was created by the former. Benazir Bhutto is the chairperson of the PPP, but not of the PPPP. The PPP has no seats in parliament, the PPPP does.

The MQM is a major party[edit]

The MQM should be considered a major party because, firstly, it has twenty seats in Parliament (14 in the NA + 6 in the Senate) and, secondly, its stronghold is urban Sindh, with a virtual lock on the megapolis of Karachi, which is Pakistan's largest city and accounts for nearly a quarter of the country's GDP, being its financial and industrial capital.

Pervez Musharraf[edit]

The Comments under the Major Parties section calls President Musharraf a "Dictator". This is clearly a matter of opinion, and should be removed. More importantly, it states that he rigged an election, this certainly needs removed if there is no citation included to prove this statement. It is common in Pakistan for any party in opposition to call the ruling coalitions leader a "dictator" and claim that elections were rigged and gov't power and funds abused. This should not be included in this page unless citations can be included; and certainly not in a matter-of-fact manner.

Addition of Sindh Dost Democratic Party as major party[edit]

A major party is a party with large parliament presence. Sindh Dost Democratic Party is very far from that, so don't add it as a major party. Fact is, there isn't even an article about this party. --Muhandes (talk) 10:39, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
