the Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf on Friday agreed on setting up a judicial commission to probe alleged rigging in 2013 general elections that were comprehensively won by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s PML-N PTI chief Imran Khan Reuters The agreement signed between the two sides ended more than seven months of political tension in the country which created uncertainty and damaged economic revival The agreement was signed by the representatives of the two sides who later also spoke to the media Finance minister Ishaq Dar who led the government’s side in talks with opposition Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) said all contentious issues have been agreed upon and a judicial commission will probe the alleged fraud in the election Former Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi representing PTI said both sides had showed flexibility to resolve the issues The judicial commission will inquire and determine whether or not the 2013 elections were organised conducted impartially honestly fairly and justly in accordance with law or were they rigged in systematic manner Khan had alleged that the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) of Sharif had rigged the 2013 polls depriving PTI of several seats He had asked the government to set up an independent commission to probe the charges The government rejected the allegations prompting PTI to launch a massive protest in the capital last August creating friction with the government Due to the protests in the capital Chinese President Xi Jinping’s trip was cancelled in September It is believed that the end of tension between the government and PTI would stabilise the government and help the economy to grow It will also bring back the lawmakers of PTI to the Parliament as they had resigned last year but the Speaker of the National Assembly had refused to accept the decision PTI By: Express News Service | New Delhi | Published: October 14 2014 12:03 am Related News This has been an oddly good year for French economists The English translation of Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century became an instant classic when it was released in April And now Jean Tirole professor at the Toulouse School of Economics — at the very least students of the dismal science would be familiar with his book on industrial organisation required reading for undergraduates — has been awarded the Nobel prize for economics for “his analysis of market power and regulation” Most free-market cheerleaders base their advocacy on the assumption of perfectly competitive markets But the invisible hand can’t function if an individual firm enjoys market power — the ability to affect prices In such an instance a case for intervention could be made But the regulator is also hamstrung by poor and asymmetric information This is where Tirole comes in By deploying game theory and mechanism design Tirole rigorously formalised several propositions about oligopolies and government contracting There is no easy way to summarise the magisterial breadth of his work — look back at the last year of news and it is possible to see a series of debates in which Tirole’s voice can’t be ignored Take for instance the case of a regulator not knowing a firm’s true marginal cost of production but needing to set prices Or a contractor wanting government to renegotiate terms halfway through by reporting a holdup due to cost escalation In both these cases Tirole showed that optimal government contracts might need to leave some fat on the bone for firms in order to incentivise them to comply Given the scale of Tirole’s impact on economic theory and government policy this recognition comes not a moment too soon Especially in India we could do with reading some more Tirole For all the latest Opinion News

Foundation) – India’s ambitious target to build 20 million new homes for the nation’s poor is failing slum dwellers and those living on the city’s streets Leilani Farha the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing has warned She said India which has the world’s largest number of urban poor and landless people is trying to address the "scourge" of inadequate housing through its ‘Housing for all’ policy that vows to provide homes for all families by 2022 But opponents fear this construction programme focuses too much on driving economic growth with a concentration on new houses rather than the need to upgrade and provide services to existing communities in city slums or living on the streets "For every luxury unit created an untold number of households may be evicted and rendered homeless" Farha told a conference at the UN office in Delhi calling for a moratorium on evictions and obligations to address homelessness "I am extremely concerned for the millions of people who experience exclusion discrimination evictions insecure tenure homelessness and who lack hope of accessing affordable and adequate housing in their lifetimes" Farha made her comments after a two-week tour through India which included visits to Delhi Mumbai and Bengaluru During her trip she spoke to a range of city residents including the homeless people described as "pavement dwellers" An estimated 65 million people or 136 million households are housed in urban slums according to the 2011 Indian census which estimated an additional 18 million people in India were homeless Farha said the Indian government’s push to encourage development of more housing nationally threatened to become what she described as a "a zero-sum game" "Its drive to become an economic giant through real estate investment and development of infrastructure is creating homelessness and housing disadvantage" she said RIGHT TO HOUSING A Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation study in 2012 estimated that the urban housing shortage affected some 187 million people with 96 percent of citizens in this group earning an annual income below $3000 The ‘Housing for all’ scheme has been cited to potentially boost the country’s economy by 35 percent by 2022 according to the Fitch group rating agency India Ratings Farha said India’s ‘Housing for all’ project aims to build 20 million dwellings with toilets water and electricity by 2022 which would be provided for 100 million low income households She said this had a positive impact on residents gaining security of tenure for the first time But Farha said the programme did not cover people living on India’s city streets with no national law reform plan policy or programme to address urban homelessness which left women particularly vulnerable "I met many women who had fled violent households and with few housing options were left destitute living on the side of a road" Farha said "Women face multiple layers of discrimination with respect to access control and ownership and inheritance of housing land and property" The Bengaluru-based Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) says the government’s vision of a slum-free India can succeed only if the focus is on upgrading existing housing for communities rather than constructing new units But the Minister for Housing and Urban Poverty Venkaiah Naidu said the ‘Housing for all’ programme addresses the shortcomings of earlier schemes and would be more "workable" Farha will present a detailed report of her India findings in March 2017 to the UN Human Rights Council which appoints independent experts or special rapporteurs to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme (Reporting by Manipadma Jena Editing by
