Pillars of Governance as required by Pakistan
Four Pillars of Governance
The four key components of governance are accountability, transparency, predictability, and participation.

Accountability is the capacity to call officials to account for their actions. Effective accountability has two components: “answerability” and consequences. “Answerability” is the requirement to respond periodically to questions concerning one’s official actions. There is also a need for predictable and meaningful consequences, without which accountability is only a time-consuming formality. In addition, both internal (administrative) and external accountability are needed. Particularly with the dramatic improvements in information and communication technology, external accountability through feedback from service users and the citizenry can now be obtained at low cost and for a greater variety of government activities, and is an essential adjunct to improving efficiency and effectiveness of public service delivery.

Transparency entails low-cost access to relevant information. Reliable and timely economic and financial information is a must for the public (normally through the filter of responsible media). It is essential not only that information be provided, but also that it be relevant and understandable. (Dumping on the private sector vast amounts of raw economic information does not improve transparency.)

Predictability results primarily from laws and regulations that are clear, known in advance, and uniformly and effectively enforced. Lack of predictability makes it difficult for public officials to plan for the provision of services (and is an excellent alibi for nonperformance). Predictability of government economic actions is also needed as an indicator on which the private sector can rely to make its own production, marketing, and investment decisions. Most importantly, to be predictable, the application of economic regulations must be effective, fair, and uniform.

Participation is needed to obtain reliable information and to serve as a reality check and watchdog for government action. Among other things, participation by external entities is needed as a spur to government operational efficiency, and feedback by users of public services is necessary for monitoring access to and quality of the services.

Empirical evidence suggests that a strong civil society plays a critical role in advancing good governance. Improving formal rules and organizations without any change in informal customs and ways of doing business avails little; importing procedures and mechanisms without reference to the incentive and local capacity framework is likely to be fruitless; interacting only with central government or, indeed, only with government, is not conducive to good implementation of reforms. Above all, governance intervention should encourage the formation of social capital, i.e., the stock of trust and information exchange at the base of civil society.

This is entirely true. this is exactly what we have been lacking since our existance as an independent state. A governance framework must be put in place however I doubt as it is something requiring some sort of revolution.
