The system of governing a state is based on its political culture and no political system can be adequately run which is not in harmony with the psyche of the nation. Pakistan was liberated in 1947, and the subcontinent's Muslims separated under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam. So at the same time, Pakistan faced many initial challenges but the most important was the formation of a Constitution. But the task of constitution-making proved to be more difficult for the Pakistani nation. Whenever a nation accepts its full independence and political existence with certain territories, its first requirement is to develop a formal constitution. Forming the constitution is an important step in achieving the country's independence. This paper discusses the complete story of the constitutional and political dilemma in Pakistan and describes the major factors behind the weak political system and how these factors were involved and become a reason to delay the process of constitution-making in Pakistan. The research-related data was collected from secondary sources.
