Power Sharing in Pakistan: A Failed Experience from 1988-1999
AbstractThe present study focuses on the democratic experience of Pakistan under a female Prime Minister and a leader from the largest province. The crash of Zia ul Haq’s plane marked the beginning of a new era and after a long time the dawn of democracy dawned and establishment announced the restoration of democracy in the state. Even though, it had already lifted martial law in 1985 but still the system was running under Zia. A long decade of dictatorship rule had badly affected the beauty of democracy. A new period started with the expectation that it would give rise to affluence and stability in the system of government, but it did not meet the standards of the people and the system was not allowed to grow in a democratic way. The study concludes with the observation that undemocratic behavior and practices failed the power sharing in Pakistan’s political system.
