Despite the ire that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has drawn for its economic policies and questionable performance of some of its lawmakers, Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Usman Buzdar has outperformed all his counterparts.

According to the latest survey conducted by Gallup Pakistan, CM Buzdar has topped performance charts against the chief ministers of Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Sindh.

The survey was conducted on the holistic performance of all chief ministers in the previous year. As many as 37 per cent people termed CM Buzdar’s performance good, followed by KP CM at 34 per cent, Balochistan CM at 30 per cent and then Sindh CM at 27 per cent.


A total of 60 per cent of Pakistanis (those who voted for him as very good, good and appropriate) are satisfied with CM Buzdar’s performance.

A large chunk (65 per cent) of youngsters are among those satisfied with the Punjab CM.


Meanwhile, a majority of Pakistanis have a favourable opinion of Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan’s performance after his first nine months in power.

According to the same survey, 58 per cent people are satisfied with his individual performance as prime minister.

The survey, however, showed that the performance of the PTI government in the field of economy was weaker than the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government. According to 51 per cent people, the PML-N government’s performance in the field of economy was better than the current government.
