Organization is critical for a political party because it helps the party to function effectively and efficiently. An organized political party typically has a clear structure, a set of policies and goals, and a well-defined system of decision-making and communication. This allows the party to coordinate its activities and present a coherent message to the public.
A political party can be organized in several ways. Typically, it involves establishing a party structure with clear roles and responsibilities for members, developing policies and platforms that reflect the party’s values and goals, establishing a system of communication and decision-making, and building a network of supporters and volunteers to help promote the party’s message and agenda.
Unorganized political parties may struggle in ideological struggles because they lack the resources and coordination necessary to effectively promote their platform and engage with voters. An unorganized party may have difficulty getting its message out to the public, building support, and mobilizing voters on election day.

Lastly, organization is more critical for a political party than leadership. King is dead, long live the king. The political parties should be symbolically like kings, with an organizational & democratic transition of leadership. The day political parties in Pakistan become organized, the day Pakistan shall tread upon the path of functional democracy.
