PTI govt has strong chances of performing better than predecessor, says expert poll
LAHORE - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government will perform better than the previous governments amid a major challenge of the economic revival of the country, according to a poll of Pakistani experts.

A poll of 100 experts, including top business leaders, journalists, members of civil society, lawyers, bureaucracy and military, was conducted by a private news channel with four items on the questionnaire. The poll comes as the PTI government is going to complete its first 100 days today.

The first question pertaining to the performance of the PTI government received a mixed response.

Question 1: How do you rank the PTI government on a scale of 1 to 10?

Of 100 experts, 58 percent has found it satisfactory while 26$ has termed it unsatisfactory. Three percent experts called it "best" and remaining 13% said it is better.


Question 2: Will this government perform better than the previous government?

Sixty percent of the experts predicted that the Prime Minister Imran Khan-led government will perform better than the previous government of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). However, 39% of experts believed that it would perform worse. One percent of the respondents did not give an answer.


Question 3: What the major challenges for the government?

Responding to the question, the 55% pundits see the economy as a major challenge to the government, while 20% of experts find governance to be a key challenge.  However, 14% of the respondents say accountability is a major challenge for the PTI government and 11% say pledges made by the PTI are the major challenge.


Question 4: Will this government complete its five-year term?

Most of the experts are of the view that the incumbent government will definitely complete its five-year term. 61% of the respondents say the government will complete its term, while 29% do not consider it likely. Ten percent of experts did not respond to this question.

The PTI government faced a financial crisis, protests by religious groups, re-emergence of terrorism and other issues during his first 100 days.

The opposition parties are calling the 100-day performance of the PTI as unimpressive, while the government is terming it remarkable with a claim that the country has been put on the right track.

Before the general election, the PTI had unveiled its 100-day development and reform agenda to be completed within the first 100 days of government.

The agenda includes transformation in governance, revitalisation of economic growth and ensuring the country's national security.
