Crafted in consultation with representatives from all classes and experts, the manifesto encompasses recommendations for constitutional reforms, governance improvements, and a commitment to good governance, said Marriyum.

The former federal minister for Information and Broadcasting said that the primary objective outlined in the manifesto is the reform of the judicial system to ensure the provision of rights, affordability, and prompt justice for urban residents. Key points in the manifesto include the promotion of foreign relations, the establishment of peace, and the further strengthening of national defence. Proposals for transparency, efficiency, and streamlined bureaucracy, civil services, and government affairs are actively being finalised, she added.

The manifesto also addresses the fair distribution of resources between the federation and provinces, along with solutions for fuel, transportation, and the development of a comprehensive policy guideline encompassing media, film, TV, history and literature, culture, and tourism.

Marriyum pointed out that climate change, population control, and the preservation of health and food are key points included in the manifesto. Immediate actionable recommendations are being formulated for the education of youth, job creation, and the provision of laptops. The PMLN central leader mentioned that the policies for the economic and social rights protection of farmers, labourers, vulnerable classes, and minorities will be a crucial aspect of the manifesto. Additionally, she said, the manifesto will address the promotion of sports, the development of new fields and sports complexes, and initiatives for special people.

Measures for the protection and promotion of the rights of women and children will be integral to the policy initiatives outlined in the manifesto. Marriyum said the PMLN has always fulfilled its promises, and it will do so again. As always, we will bring ease into the lives of the people.”
