Interim Setup

·      Existing system does not provide a way in which honest, middle class and competent people could come in the corridors of power.  There is nothing wrong with the democracy, per se, but can you imagine democracy to flourish in a country where hardly 30% of the population is educated, where the election commission plays in the hands of the powerful and corrupt, where you need to spend million to earn eligibility to contest and another million to run you campaign. The answer is big NO.
·      We want democracy too but we strongly believe that it will not work here without few quick revolutionary changes in our society. To bring these basic changes to transform our society into a successful democratic country an interim setup will be put in place. This setup will consist of honest, competent and patriot citizens of well known Pakistanis who have clean past and are willing to work for the nation without self interests.
·      A spirit of revolution will be invoked into the hearts of the masses with a great nationalistic speech full of emotions and character. Quick immediate steps will be announced to put the nation in the revolutionary state of mind. With the full backing of the armed forces of Pakistan, interim setup will be in place with a clear mandate. These people of known good reputation will be chosen by YOU on this blog for governing the nation for one term of five years. We have mentioned a list down with few names that we deemed capable of bringing the change to our nation. Basing on your feedback and reviews we keep on updating this list.

·      This is our dream cabinet. These people will not be a burden on the economy as our present lot of rulers is. They will be living like common men but their hard work will take the nation to the starting point where the proper democratic government which will be by the people, for the people and of the people can come into place.  Your valuable suggestions are more than welcome. Please name good persons of your choice in the comments down.


  1. 1. What do you think who should be the head of the interim government?
    2. Who is the best choice for the chairman of the truth and accountability commission?
    3. Who all should be the member of the cabinet?

    Tell us your choice?

  2. I would recommend the name of Hassan Nisar, he is a very educated and well read intellectual. He can be a good person in the development of the new government policy.

  3. M 100% agree wd u
    Wht about Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan

  4. Thanks Zohaib for the comments.
    I think Abdul Qadeer khan is our Hero whose services to the Nation can never be forgotten. For sure he can be part of the interim set up.
    He can be also part of the think tank advising the government of issues of national interest.

  5. I name Sherien Mazari to be made part of the interim set up.

  6. Dr Shahid Hasan Siddiqi is very good economists and is very very sincere and clear headed person. He should be the finance minister and given full hand and full backing of the chief executive of the interim setup.

  7. I will like to add Mr Saleem Bukhari who is a senior journalist in the interim setup. A well read, educated and very patriotic Pakistani.

  8. Nushahid Hussain Syed is also recommended. Either him or Dr Shireen Mazari should be our Foreign Minister.

  9. Let there be a charter of minimum, non-negotiable demands with the top item being regaining sovereignty. It should be written in bold letters: Henceforth, all drone attacks will be responded to in kind.

    Furthermore, all CIA operatives must leave the country within 36 hours. All politicians must declare their wealth to the public within 24 hours and whatever is not declared should become public property and whatever is declared should be scrutinised by an independent commission.

    In addition, there should be a list of basic national problems for which solutions must be found within a reasonable time by an independent council of experts who should have the power to implement solutions. On top of the list will be the energy crisis, which has been blamed on corruption, poor planning, lack of resources and just about everything else. However, there are ways to estimate demand for gas and electricity and all that the country needs is a transparent and fast track procedure to meet this demand.

    It will cost money, but money is not the problem here; the problem is sheer incompetence and corruption. It has been claimed that if Pakistan were to replace its old grid wires, there will be enough electricity to meet our needs. And it has also been said that if Pakistan’s rulers were to stop their extravagance, there will be enough money to overhaul this grid system.

  10. hese incidents will never stop if we do not look at it in depth. This is something this present government just cannot do. We need a change, a revolution, a different setup. Come on the youth of Pakistan. Lets bring the revolution.

  11. I thought your article really had some meat until I saw Zaid Hamid .. Remove him and you are good to go .. keeping Zaid Hamid makes your intellect questionable.

  12. Customs Health Care Society Flood Relief Drive.

    This is a nice and commendable but simplistic effort.
    Life doesn't work that way.
    People speak on the telly and we get impressed.
    It is not essential that people who are good at words (written and spoken) will be as good at actions (comprehansive decision making and monitoring of those decisions).
    Best approach will be to support Imran Khan actively via PTI's political forum and leave him to hire or fire his team.
