[Pakistani Democracy] Dynastic and Lota Politics

Half a month back we heard Imran Khan and PTI companions saying how dynastic governmental issues have harmed Pakistan and how PTI won’t give passes to electables and “lotas” in the future.

Presently by-decisions are here and let’s view the “meriting philosophical” up-and-comers of PTI. But first, we need to address what actually qualifies as a political dynasty.

The legacy of a political dynasty can be comparable, but does any family in this country come close to the socio-economic powerhouse that is Sharif or Bhutto dynasty?

Does any dynasty stand any chance at ‘real prize’ in this democracy compared to that of Sharifs/Bhuttos? PMLN never said anything against dynastic politics. In fact, in democracy, the thesis is not on whether the candidate could be a legal heir of a person in power politics.
