Abstract: Autocratic or authoritative political parties’ strong influence on Pakistan’s political system establishes heterogeneous society and parochial political culture. In spite of undemocratic characteristics of Pakistan’s political parties, they introduce themselves as democratic political parties. Problem is not only that these political parties are autocratic or authoritative; the main issue is that the affects and outcomes of these political parties do not allow for taking some crucial steps toward political development and better governance. Because these political parties do not want bureaucratization, institutionalization, democratization and professionalization which are the parts of political development and these constructs have great potential for changing in structure of society but the main changes are occurred in public or governmental institutions, organizations and departments. The major point is that the structure of political parties becomes an obstacle for political developments because changing in public institutions and organizations cannot occur without political parties’ transfer from authoritative or autocratic to democratic. Reason is that these political developments are the opposite forces of autocratic or authoritative political parties that can weak or lurch the autocratic political parties and only democratic political parties can accept these changes. In this connection, research requires a comprehensive and smart research methodology; therefore, in this research thesis quantitative research methodology, with deductive strategy is used for meaningful results through field survey of two hundred and twenty numbers of populations of political parties and civil bureaucracy. This field survey required SPSS (Cross tabulation, chi-square test) and one-way ANOVA for understanding the variations and comprehensive analysis which helped to define the statement of the problem, hypothesis, and research questions in the light of objectives of study of the research. Findings of this study reflects that majority of the politicians, members of political parties are not familiar with their parties’ constitutions and manifestos. Political parties’ members and workers are unsatisfied from their political parties’ progress. Majority of the political workers and members are not educated and have no special political education or training. But they know very well that democratic political parties are important for development and autocratic or authoritative political parties’ cannot take change in society therefore, majority of the population said 2013 government of federal and all provinces’ progress is bad. Politicians or political parties are doing interfere in the matters of governmental institutions, organizations and influence or pressurize the civil bureaucracy for their personal benefits. Today, Pakistan have to face lots of challenges in various fields due to autocratic or authoritative political parties in which common people are suffered and affected because majority of the common people are deprived from their basic needs and rights that is the responsibility of the governments. But not due to availability of basic rights and needs to common people, they are so frustrated because political parties have failed to deliver or secure the common people interest articulation. Beyond these issues political parties have realized that common people are hopeless from present political parties. Therefore, they have to deliver for common people otherwise the future of these political parties can be dark.
