JAVERIA RAHEEM, 15, RAWALPINDI
I would make Pakistan into a developed country.
There is no development going on at the moment. Also, one should be able to elect the president, so that people don't come along and just take power on their own.
There are a lot of things we need to work on and change. There is a lot of poverty in our country and shortage of water, food and education. Especially education.
We can only end poverty through education. Education is the way.
I think the government should provide poor children with schooling, and take care of all their schooling needs - books, clothes, everything.
And an effort should be made to provide good teachers with good teaching methods, because that is the way children will really be able to learn.
NADEEM, 13, KARACHI
First I would fix all the roads in the country.
And I would arrange to look after all the poor orphans in the country, make sure they are given food.
I would also fix the police, especially the way they take bribes from people to do their work."
SEERAT, 13, ISLAMABAD
First of all I would give financial help to the poor people.
And I would set up schools and colleges for them.
NAUSHEEN MUSHTAQ, 17, KARACHI
First of all I would put an end to the security arrangements of the president and other VIPs, because they cause so much inconvenience to the general public to ordinary citizens.
They create traffic chaos and disruption when they are in town or need to go somewhere.
Other than that I would raise the standard of education in the country. I would make whole country have the same syllabus and the same examination board.
It shouldn't be provincial education boards. Everybody should have the same course and be evaluated on that, everybody should have equal opportunities in education.
HAFIZ ABDUL NAVEED, 17, LAHORE
I'd give education top priority.
Along with education I would also try to end unemployment so that we can wipe out poverty, so that every citizen can have a good life.
ZAHEER BABER, 18, LAHORE
I'd lower prices, especially petrol prices.
Prices have shot up in Musharraf's time. It wasn't so under the last president.
They say that oil prices in the world have gone down, but here the fuel price has increased.
Ninety-nine percent of the people in Pakistan are dying because everything is so expensive. You earn only Rs 100-150 a day.
How can whole families subsist on three or four thousand rupees a month?
MAHAMMED ADIL, 16, CHARSADDA
First of all I would try to finish corruption.
I would also like to improve the security situation. The biggest issue is education.
Our literacy rate is very poor compared to India or other South Asian countries, our literacy rate is the lowest in any comparison and this must be changed.
The political situation should be changed as well. The army should not govern, it should fight or stay in the barracks.
We need an Islamic system rather than a democratic system. Because in a democratic system, if there are 100 ignorant and illiterate persons versus 99 educated ones, the illiterates would win.
