Pakistan’s president is the head of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. According to Pakistan’s Constitution, the President has “powers, subject to the Supreme Court’s approval or veto, to dissolve the National Assembly, to release new elections and therefore reject the Prime Minister.” The president has governments restricted and performing ceremonial functions while the prime minister has several authorities to make decisions. The President is elected by the Electoral Committee composed of the Senate, the National Assembly and the Provincial Assemblies. The President may be in place for a period of five years in the event of a President ending the word before or during the absence of the President, the President’s President shall take a post.

These forces were changed several times through changes to the constitution, which were introduced as a result of military coups and changes in government. Since the 18th amendment of the Constitution was adopted in 2010, Pakistan has gone from being a half-president to a parliamentary democratic republic. Under that system, the president has limited governance and performs ceremonial duties, while the prime minister has several authorities to make decisions. The first president was a retired military officer, four others were commanded military officers, three of whom gained power through successful military coups in Pakistan’s history.
