Description:
Pakistan has 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.
