What is the national culture of Pakistan

Politics of Pakistan

The Pakistani state takes the form of a parliamentary democracy with two chambers, the Senate and the National Assembly. The president must be elected by the deputies of these two chambers and by the deputies of the provincial assemblies. Mamnoon Hussain has held this office since July 30, 2013.

He is also a member of the Pakistan Muslim League, as is the incumbent head of government, Nawaz Sharif, who was elected by the National Assembly on June 5, 2013 after his party had won the majority in the previous elections. The Pakistani Prime Minister also holds the office of Foreign Minister, but is assisted in this by the Advisor for National Security and Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz.

Three parties are currently particularly important in the Pakistani parliament:

  • Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N), which is currently the ruling party. Its chairman is Shehbaz Sharif.
  • Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), which was also the ruling party from 2008 to 2013. She is closely associated with the Bhutto clan, since after the assassination of Benazir Bhutto on December 27, 2007, her son, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, became chairman of the party. In the background, however, Bilawal's father, Asif Ali Zardari, who was President of the Republic from 2008 to September 2013, is holding the strings.
  • Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), run by former cricket star Imran Khan.

Of lesser importance are the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM), the party of Muslim immigrants and their descendants in southern Sindh, and Jamaat-e-Ulema-e-Islamyia (JUI-F), currently the only major religious party in the National Assembly is.

The judiciary is exercised by the Supreme Court and its subordinate courts. In addition, there is a separate institution that checks whether the laws of the country correspond to those of Islamic Sharia, the Federal Shariat Court of Pakistan.
