Voters not taking interest in FPCCI elections


ISLAMABAD, Dec 09 (Online): The Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) on Wednesday said FPCCI is going through a crisis of leadership and vision since long which has disappointed the voters therefore they are not taking interest in the upcoming elections.

Many businessmen are not eager to participate in the upcoming elections while others are undecided to vote for United Business Group (UBG) or Businessmen Panel (BMP) as both have failed to come up to their expectations, said Chairman Pakistan Economy Watch Brig. (retd) Aslam Khan.

He said that UBG ruled FPCCI for five years but failed to bring any meaningful change. BMP realised their failure and came to power by promising a change but their slogan never translated into reality.

Both the groups have failed to improve working and image of the FPCCI and both have bulldozed merit during their tenures resulting in a disaster, he added.

Aslam Khan noted that just three weeks have left in the FPCCI elections but UBG and BMP have failed to announce their manifesto while both groups are facing problems to find candidates.
