Line of succession to President of Pakistan


Line of succession to President of Pakistan

Pakistan had a parliamentary system of government that has been modified several times since its inception.

The constitution does not allow for a vice president, but the chairman of the Senate of Pakistan officiates in the absence of the President and takes over on the President's death or removal from office. If chairman of the Senate is not available the speaker of National assembly performs duties of the President of Pakistan.

The Electoral College of Pakistan is responsible for electing a new president.

Article 49 of the constitution states about this matter.

Article 49

*If the office of President becomes vacant by reason of death, resignation or removal of the President the Chairman or, if he is unable to perform the functions of the office of President, the chairman of the Senate shall act as President until a President is elected in accordance with clause (3) of Article 41.

*When the President, by reason of absence from Pakistan or any other cause, is unable to perform his functions, the Chairman or, if he too is absent or unable to perform the functions of the office of President, the Speaker of the National Assembly shall perform the functions of President until the President returns to Pakistan or, as the case may be, resumes his functions
