While there can be several reasons for exasperating inter-regional inequality across regions, political institutions and politicians may explain a significant size of this inequality. Politicians exercise considerable de facto political power to redirect resources towards their regions which has a substantial cost for least developed regions.

Pakistan is among those countries where the share of elected political dynasties in parliament is one of the highest in the world.

It represents more than 50 percent of elected legislature since 1970, he shared with the audience.

Their study explored the impact of dynastic persistence on local development and public service provisioning.

The findings suggest that Constituencies with non-dynasts winners perform better than the dynast winners in terms of local economic development.

The potential reason for the worse performance of dynasts could be associated with lower political participation, besides other factors.

The authors suggests abolishing discretionary funds and minimizing the influence of legislators over PSDP spending can be an effective deterrent to cut down the divergence between the performance of dynasts and non-dynasts.
