Political Empowerment and Local Governance: Evidence from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Local Government Act 2013
Author: Muhammad Rauf

Good governance and local government institutions are closely inter-linked. The local government institutions have allowed effective participation and involvement of people in their decision and public-policy making at grass-roots level. This research aimed at identifying the empowerment level of local representatives in funds disbursement and political decision making under the local government Act 2013. The research has concluded that the local representatives are somehow satisfied and find themselves independent in their decision making and budgetary allocation. However, few factors are still a barrier in their way which is affecting the smooth functioning of the local government system. The results conclude that an independent and just system is needed, where the decision they (local representatives) make should be independent and should hold a strong place Supervisor:- Dr. Karim Khan
