  1. What type of Parliament do we have? We have yet to create a “working” political system that “delivers.” Forget about “Jamhuriat.”Look at America and it s role model of democracy. It started, like Britain, with two mainstream political parties that are “cult-free.” American model is delivering since 1798. President is elected for a term of 4 years with a mid-term election that almost determines if the President might have another 4 year’s term in office. Many finish only with one term and don’t eben think of getting another term. We haven’t, therefore, even started Pakistan’s success story yet.
