Abstract

Pakistan had a turbulent history of Constitutional and political development which not only destabilized democracy but circumvented the economic development as a result of weak constitutional structures. The three martial-law regimes (i.e. Ayub, Zia and Musharraf) not only elected themselves as presidents of Pakistan through so-called polls but also managed to form weak Parliaments in order to take control over it by introducing random amendments in the Constitution of Pakistan which messed up the process of development. The key objective of this article is to examine the impacts depicted on the constitutional, political, economic aspects and the rule of law situation in Pakistan as a result of some judicial decisions by the apex Court.
