Provinces: Pakistan is divided into four provinces. Governors are appointed by the President to head each Province.
The Provincial Governments may legislate in certain areas for example health, education, agriculture, municipal planning and roads. National Assembly: Members of the National Assembly are elected by universal adult suffrage over eighteen years of age in Pakistan. Seats are allocated to each of the four Provinces, the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, and Islamabad Capital Territory on the basis of population. National Assembly members serve for the parliamentary term, which is five years, unless they die or resign sooner, or unless the National Assembly is dissolved.
Although the vast majority of the members are Muslim, about 5 percent of the seats are reserved for minorities, including Christians, Hindus, and Sikhs.
Elections for minority seats are held on the basis of separate electorates at the same time as the polls for Muslim seats during the general elections. Senate: The Senate is a permanent legislative body with equal representation from each of the four Provinces, elected by the members of their respective Provincial Assemblies. The Chairman of the Senate, under the Constitution, is next in line to act as President should the office become vacant and until such time as a new President can be formally elected.
Prime Minister and Cabinet: The majority of members in the National Assembly nominate a member as Prime Minister from amongst themselves. That individual is then appointed as Prime Minister by the President from among the members of the National Assembly. The Prime Minister is assisted by the Federal Cabinet, a council of ministers whose members are appointed by the President on the advice of the Prime Minister.
It is the majority party in the National Assembly which usually is instrumental in nominating and electing a person as the President. At various times in history, changes in the Constitution of Pakistan have altered the powers and privileges associated with the office of the President.
At present, Pakistan has a semi-presidential system of government. The semi-presidential system is a system of government that features both a prime minister and a president who are active participants in the day to day functioning of government. Process of Law Making The Constitution sets out the procedure to be followed for promulgating a statute.
In the absence of the National Assembly, statutes are promulgated by the President pursuant to Article 89 1 of the Constitution. Under this Article, the President may, if satisfied that circumstances exist which render it necessary to take immediate action, make and promulgate an Ordinance.
Such Ordinances have the same force and effect as an Act of Parliament. A similar power is bestowed upon Provincial Governors by Article 1 of the Constitution in respect of matters falling within provincial legislative authority. There is a Law Department operating under the supervision and control of the Law and Justice Division in each province. The Law and Justice Division is generally called upon, from time to time, to tender advice on various important and controversial constitutional and legal issues.
Legislative Drafting: Drafting of Ordinances and Bills is a major function and responsibility of the Law and Justice Division which is looked after by the Drafting Wing. Litigation: The other major function and responsibility of the Division is to look after the litigation on behalf of the Government of Pakistan.
It also approves the appointment of legal advisers for which purpose there is a committee comprising the Attorney General, Law and Justice Minister and the Law and Justice Secretary.
Judicial Academy: The Federal Judicial Academy was set up by the Law and Justice Ministry in September, for the adequate training of Judges, Government law officers, police officers and doctors dealing with medical legal cases. It consists of a Chief Justice known as Chief Justice of Pakistan and such number of other judges as may be determined by the Act of Parliament.
The Chief Justice of Pakistan is appointed by the President. Other Judges are also appointed by the President after consultation with the Chief Justice.
Jurisdiction: The Supreme Court has original, appellate and advisory jurisdiction. Original Jurisdiction: The Supreme Court, to the exclusion of every other Court in Pakistan, has the jurisdiction to pronounce declaratory judgments in any dispute between the Federal Government or a provincial government or between any two or more provincial governments.
The Supreme Court, if it considers that a question of public importance, with reference to the enforcement of any of the Fundamental Rights ensured by the Constitution of Pakistan is involved, it has the power to make any appropriate order for the enforcement of fundamental rights. Appellate Jurisdiction: The Supreme Court has jurisdiction to hear and determine appeals from judgments, decrees, final orders or sentences passed by a High Court, the Federal Shariat Court and the Services Appellate Tribunals.
An appeal to the Supreme Court can be made as a matter of right for certain cases while for the rest the Court hears an appeal with its prior permission. Advisory Jurisdiction: It, at any time, the President considers that it is desirable to obtain the opinion of the Supreme Court on any question of law which he considers of public importance, he may refer the question to the Supreme Court for consideration. The Supreme Court considers the question so referred and reports its opinion on the question to the President.
Transfer of Cases: The Supreme Court may, if it considers expedient to do so in the interest of justice, transfer any case, appeal or other proceedings pending before any High Court to any other High Court. General: The practice and procedure of the Court is regulated by the rules made by the Court. All executive and judicial authorities throughout Pakistan are required to act in aid of the Supreme Court.
Any decision of the Supreme Court to the extent it decides a question of law or is based upon or enunciates a principle of law is binding on all courts in Pakistan. The Supreme Court has the power to review any judgment pronounced by it or any order made by it.
A High Court consists of a Chief Justice and as many other Judges as may be determined by law or as may be fixed by the President. Jurisdiction: A High Court has original and appellate jurisdiction.
Besides the original jurisdiction conferred by the Constitution, a High Court has original jurisdiction in many other matters conferred by or under various laws. Appellate Jurisdiction: A High Court has extensive appellate jurisdiction against the judgments, decisions, decrees and sentences passed by the civil and criminal courts.
