The people living within the main land of Pakistan comprise many societies, composed of more than one factors. There is a variety of religious sects and factions, ethnic and linguistic groups, the ruling elite class with aristocratic designs, and deprived and destitute poor classes with rural urban discrimination. Seemingly, Pakistani nation is held together by external compulsion or by sheer necessity or by the dint of the historical factors. These and many other phenomena put a question mark on the rationale of national unity today. This can be further explained by analyzing the factors that have cultivated the regionalism and provincialism in the country, which have led to the succession of unstable governments, and political instability. Furthermore, the periodic eruption of religion and ethnic tensions that at times led to the bloodshed and lawlessness in different parts of the Pakistan is basically the by-product of historical process as well as cultural variations that lie beneath the surface and ready to be ignited time and again. In the article in hand, an effort has been made to present a careful estimate of the nature and content of Pakistani electorate right from the creation in 1947 to its modern day role as electoral college in country's politics.
