The Asian countries are still not in a position to embrace the democratic values in its totality. However, they are learning fast and taking all steps to provide proper place to democratic ideals in their countries .The problem is that most of the Asian countries are devoid of real leaders. In other words, there is lack of alternatives. What can the electorates do, like in Pakistan, other than to chose worn out leaders? Ironically, these countries do not let right people to emerge as leaders because that goes against the interest of extremist forces.
Anyway, people have now realized that its better to give way to progressive ideals than being bogged down by limited agendas. The electorates are now giving more importance to development oriented parties instead of flirting with parties solely interested in propaganda of various types.
