Provinces and territories of Pakistan

The four provincial governments of Pakistan administer the four provinces of Pakistan.[1] There are also two territories and two disputed regions which have similar governments but with some differences. The head of each province is a non-executive Governor appointed by the President, on the advice of the Prime Minister.[1]:68 The Governors play a similar role, at the provincial level, as the President does at the federal level. Each province has a directly-elected unicameral legislature (provincial assembly), with members elected for five-year terms.[1]:70 Each provincial assembly elects a Chief Minister, who then selects a cabinet of ministers from amongst the members of the Provincial Assembly.[1]:80 Each province also has a High Court, which forms part of the superior judiciary.[2]
