About : 

  • A system, successful in one country may fail in another having a different conventional, social, political, educational and temperamental background. Parliamentary system of Government, first inherited and subsequently adopted in Pakistan, consequently, failed due to several causes.
  • The New Constitution provides for Presidential system of Government, which is more suited to the conditions prevailing in Pakistan. With only one person at the head of affairs as President, who is a representative of the people, with restraint exercised by an independent legislature, members of which being not in a position to interfere in the administration for their personal needs, and, an independent judiciary, the system will, it is confidently hoped, be successful, foster a concept of national unity and promote speedy political and economic growth of the country. There is a provision in the Constitution for the setting up of an Advisory Council of Islamic Ideology, in conformity with the objective for which Pakistan has been established.
