Political Dynasties and Candidate Selection: A Case of Pakistan
AbstractThis research explores that the political leadership of major political parties relies on candidate that belonged to dynastic background. Political dynasties became the emerging trend of politics in all political system of the world. Pakistan is one of those countries where more than 50% public representative belongs to some sort of dynasties. An electable candidate is acceptable for nomination and favorable for the voters due to winning position. Contrarily, voters are also motivated and deeply persuaded by dynastic candidate in elections. So the selection of the candidate and the voting trend of the voters both support the dynastic candidate on elections day. The data to predict this argument is collected in two steps. Firstly, from the nomination papers of each candidate to submit the Election Commission of Pakistan and secondly the General Elections 2013 result.
