Reserved Seats in Baloshistan
[Posted on : 2014-06-10 by Mumtaz Lakhani] A total of 2,332 women and 743 non-Muslim seats have been reserved for local councils throughout the province. Elected members from each local council in all districts serve as the electoral college for the elections on reserved seats.
Under the Balochistan Local Government Act, four categories have been ascribed to reserved seats in each local council, namely women, peasants/workers, professional social workers and non-Muslims.
Balochistan councillors looking for purpose
[Posted on : 2014-04-30 by Aurangzaib Khan] Since the local elections were held December 7 last year, residents of the area have become routine in port Barraich Idrees, Director. But Barraich, and many other representatives of local authorities, still waiting for a transfer of power.
"It s like a child born out of wedlock: we have been chosen, but we have no legitimacy," says Barraich. "The councilors elected 7 December, the oath somewhere in the month of June will be after the elections to reserve seats [May 29, 2014], and the election of President and Vice President of the Local Government [has not yet announced the date, but it is likely to happen in the month of June.] in the middle, we have no authority or status. "
While councilors accuse the bureaucracy and the provincial government for its reluctance to share power with local authorities, the delay in the transfer of skills, according to the Provincial Election Commission is due to vague electoral rules that require reviews to adapt to the system. The ambiguity of the rules - which some say has occurred because the province has been precipitated in the elections - has been an obstacle in the conduct of elections in a hurry.
For starters, the provincial government wanted the elections on the basis of the party - which was not foreseen in the Law on Local Government of Balochistan, 2010 After a rapid change in the law in October 2013, elections were held on party basis -. With regard to the election authorities realize that clear rules for the election of reserving seats were not in place. In addition, the political parties in power wanted elections booking puts those conducted through open voting, while the electoral commission said that the secret ballot.
"Aside from the fact that we want the rules are simple and easy to follow for the public, but also do not want to disputes and litigation that may lead to vague rules," says Sultan Bayazeed Provincial Electoral Commissioner. "Our task is to conduct the election, not develop standards. This is the job of the government and thats what took the time."
Political parties want to model a system that is faithful to the Constitution of 1973, which covers the two-tier system of government, federal and provincial, encouraging governments to hold local elections. While the laws of the various local government introduced by the military governments have always tried to create substitutes for the parliamentary immunity, the political forces of the province are particularly critical of the Local Government Act 2001, passed under the military President Pervez Musharraf.
"The powers of the Constitution gave the provinces were taken by the LG Act 2001," says Qadir Agha, a former Nazim and deputy secretary of the provincial party Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami, one of the three parts of the provincial government coalition. "Our struggle is to maintain their independence, especially after the 18th Amendment."
Political forces have tended towards the Local Government Ordinance 1979 restores the system of commissioners, in contrast to the overall performance of the powers of the district governments under the law LG 2001.
"It should make the elected district governments must exercise power as provided for LG Act 2001," said Nasrullah Barraich, executive director of the Center for Peace and Development, Balochistan. "In the current system, the powers are" delegated "to them instead of transferred. Commissioner may delegate the powers and remove anyone."
Meanwhile, it is not the emotion that led to the provinces of Balochistan local elections. For a time, he says Kazim Niaz, Secretary of Local Government and Rural Development, Balochistan was "the engine, not the cart, which leads the rest of the country."
"We have done the impossible possible," says Bayazeed. "And despite the enormity of the year, we made without incident."
