Human Rights Year Book 2018

February 17, 2017


CoverEnglish_smallAll the three tier elections provisioned by the Constitution were held and results have already been announced. The exuberant participation of people in these elections have not only highlighted their belief and faith towards democracy, but also their willingness towards change and prosperity. These elections are expected to pave the way forward ending long transition in the country.

The country could not accelerate towards development after a protracted political leadership hide their weakness by pointing out “transition” and people were compelled to live with it. The citizens are hopeful to the new government on ending transition and leading country towards prosperity.
