Governance, Corruption and the Media: Reflection of Corruption during the PML-Q and PML-N Political Regimes

Salman Amin, Dr. Taimoor-ul-Hassan, Dr. Deeba Shahwar, Dr. Ghulam Shabir, Dr. Sajjad Ali.


The aim of this study was to see how newspapers framed the corruption issue as well as the legitimacy and impact on government efficiency in both political regimes (PML-Q&N) from 2007-02 & 2013-18. The study used a quantitative content analysis approach to analyse the frames "Good" and "Bad" from the standpoint of Agenda setting level 2 "Framing Theory." All news reports about Pakistan's corruption issue that appeared in English newspapers in Pakistan were analysed. For this study, census sampling was deemed necessary and was used. The study's findings showed that both governments simply tried to raise awareness of the corruption issue rather than enact legislation to address it. Both the elected government and opposition parties undermine democracy by engaging in adversarial politics in the conventional political style.

Key words: General Issues, PML-Q & N, English Newspaper, Content Analysis
