Abstract : Pakistan's dominant bureaucratic structures are assuming a wider jurisdiction, and in the process are involving more people in the decision-making and implementing process. Pakistan's politics are changing because of the increasing role of the state in coordinating an increasingly differentiated and complex common society. President Ayub Khan and his agents have opted for a slowly changing political system to avoid the worse consequences of unchecked advocacy and dissonance, and have been constrained in their choice of approaches both by the inherited structures and by the lack of consensual support of the society.
