ISLAMABAD: More than half of the people of Pakistan prefer an out of court settlement to resolve their disputes as opposed to a judicial resolution to a dispute, revealed a recently released Gilani Poll conducted by Gallup Pakistan.
In a survey, a nationally representative sample of men and women from across the country were asked the following question:
Do you prefer an out of court settlement to solve your disputes, or otherwise?
The poll results revealed that 55% preferred an out of court settlement, while 44% are opposed to the idea.
In a survey a nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces were asked to voice their opinion on engagement with the judicial system.
2% did not know or chose not to respond.
The study was released by the Gilani foundation and carried out by Gallup Pakistan, the Pakistani affiliate of Gallup International.
The recent survey was carried out among a sample of 2,702 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during July 3-4, 2011.
