Citizens Meeting with LG representatives UC Kaak, Mirpurkhas

Transparency International Pakistan in collaboration with ARTS Foundation organized a meeting between Citizens and LG representatives. The objective was to exercise social accountability and providing citizens a platform to ask questions about the performance of their LG members. UC Kaak was selected where Chairman Rafique Laghari and councilors were present and answered questions raised by the citizens. A total of 26 citizens participated in the session. Although we requested women participation, but due to cultural norms we were informed it was not possible. Many questions such as about NADRA and WAPDA did not qualify the subject of local government however, they were answered comprehensibly by TI representative Ashfaque Ahmed. The ARTS Foundation took the responsibility to write the complaints on behalf of citizens and forward them to TI Pakistan. The Chairman of UC Kaak told that he believed in transparency and wanted his UC as a model for other nearby UCs.
