ABSTRACT Pakistan has faced a very unstable political history. Time and again, military dictators have overthrown civilian governments and have derailed the democratic political setup in the country. A glimpse at the history shows that for more than three decades, Pakistan has been ruled under military dictatorship. Against this backdrop, there have been a very few democratic parties that have succeeded to complete their democratic tenures in the country. The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) is one such party that has rendered its services to the political setup of Pakistan since the party’s inception in 1967. As a matter of fact, it was only after the General Elections of 2008 that a democratically-elected government of the Pakistan People’s Party successfully completed its five-year term for the first time in history of the country, which is a commendable achievement for any political party in Pakistan. In this paper, an overview and analysis of the contribution of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in the political set up of Pakistan is presented.
