Political priority is one of the most important elements in agenda setting as it mirrors the interest of political actors to take a specific problem over others. Not only at the agenda setting stage but political priority also plays a significant role in policy formulation, implementation and evaluation. Kingdon in his Stream Model emphasised on three elements i.e. problem stream, proposal stream and politics stream, and for a successful agenda setting it is essential that these three steams come together and turned into a policy decision. This article is an effort to see how political priorities and political commitments make a specific problem as policy agenda and contribute to the cause.
