The passage of the Eighteenth Constitutional Amendment on April 20th, 2010, was hailed as a significant achievement in the constitutional history of Pakistan. The amendment, which was the result of the hard work of a committee comprised of political stalwarts and representatives of various political parties, was intended to strengthen democracy and devolve power to lower tiers of government, allowing people to address their problems more effectively.

However, more than twelve years later, issues still persist, and there is doubt regarding the federal government's role in the process. This study aims to analyze and critically evaluate the performance of political parties that played a key role in the development of the amendment, as well as identify the challenges that they faced in implementing it. The paper also highlights the challenges faced by the Pakistan’s political leadership in fulfilling the goals of the amendment and achieving true provincial autonomy.
