In those elected institutions the whole legislative process is controlled by government as they are in majority in the elected institutions. This study compares the government of two ideologically different parties/coalition–Mutahida Majilis-i-Amal and Awami National Party in terms of their legislation. Mutahida Majilis-i-Amal, an alliance of the religious parties mainly focused on implementing Islamic Laws as they promised in the manifesto while Awami National Party tilt was towards western welfare legislation. Apart from the implementation of Islamic laws Mutahida Majilis-i-Amal to its credit have some other laws related to education and health etc. The quantitative comparison of the legislation of both the governments shows that Awami National Party has an upper hand as their government passed 98 laws while Mutahida Majilis-i-Amal during its government passed 55 laws as they gave more time to the Hisba bill which could not become law due to the opposition of central government.
