The Constituent Assembly of Pakistan was formed to write Pakistan's constitution, and serve as its first parliament. It first convened on 11 August 1947, before the end of British rule on August 15, 1947. Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was the first President of this Assembly until his death on 11th September 1948. Subsequently Liaquat Ali Khan headed the constituent assembly for three years, but failed to produce any document. The only job that this assembly was able to do was to write a ten liner "Objective Resolution". It was dissolved on October 24, 1954. On the contrary, Indian Constituent assembly which had more diversity, took two years, eleven months and seventeen days to complete the constitution.After fresh elections were held, it was reconstituted on May 28, 1955 lasting until March 23, 1956 when the new constitution came into place and Pakistan became a Republic.

Pakistan's Constituent Assembly was preceded by the Constituent Assembly of India which first met on December 9, 1946 in Delhi, while India was still under British rule. It originally included the provinces that now compose Pakistan and Bangladesh, and the representation of the princely states of India. In June 1947, the delegations from the provinces of Sindh, East Bengal, Baluchistan, West Punjab and the North West Frontier Province formed the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan in Karachi.
