The Political System in Pakistan

The Political System in Pakistan

  • 18 June 2000

The death of the main political leaders in less than four years after the founding of Pakistan, marked the beginning of a tussle between weak politicians and powerful members of the defense and civil establishments. Pakistan has been under semi-martial law for at least twenty-five years of its fifty-year history. The state does not function as a coherent unit. Inter-institutional relations are often marked by competitiveness and conflict. Consequently, the state has become vulnerable to the influence of powerful institutions. The army has now assigned itself the role of final arbitrator and the task of reforming the state structure.
