Sachay Sawal (True Questions) was a series of four electoral debates broadcast by BBC Media Action in Pakistan during the May 2013 general elections. The debates were designed to create an opportunity for ordinary Pakistanis to question political candidates on key issues of concern. BBC Media Action research reflects the appetite of Pakistanis for the programme, and its particular appeal to groups that are typically marginalised from the political process – women and youth.
