Abstract

The objective of this study is to analyze the impact of political uncertainty on Pakistan’s economy. Pakistan is grappling with the worst kind of economic crunch due to the cycle of political vengeance. The paper discusses the historical developments that how the country has been plowed by the constant cycle of changing regimes during the muddling nineties and Flat fifties. The constant power struggle and frightened political environment have deterred both domestic and foreign investors. In this research paper, qualitative research method has been used which includes data from research articles, journals, opinions and books. The piece highlights the severe consequences, including energy outages, reduced purchasing power, and mounting inflation due to inconsistent policies and governance anomalies. The path forward lies in establishing a consistent economic policy framework by appointing non-partisan economists and state leaders must address structural reforms as these two solutions are the only pathway towards economic stability.
