Abstract


To enhance public political participation, it is mandatory to examine individual psychological involvement in political affairs. The current study is an effort to investigate public political interest (psychological involvement) in Pakistan. For this purpose, a survey instrument was adopted from the existing literature. By using that instrument data was collected from the urban areas of the country. After that, it was analyzed by using SPSS version 24.0 for windows. Results of the study suggest that people living in the urban areas are comparatively more interested in the political affairs than the people, living in the rural areas of the country. Additionally, a significant effect of explanatory variables such as; age, gender, education, efficacy and performance evolution on public political interest was also found.
