It is quite different from Musharuff’s Local Government Ordinance 2001 as there are many new and interesting clauses in it. The basic philosophy behind is this statute is to establish an elected local government system to devolve political, administrative and financial responsibilities to the elected representatives of the local governments. An effective local government system can promote good governance, effective delivery of services and solid decision making.
