The Governor-General was the Emperor's representative in Pakistan and exercised most of the Emperor's powers. The Governor-General was appointed for an indefinite term, serving at the pleasure of the Emperor.
After the passage of the Westminster Act of 1931, the Governor-General was appointed solely on the advice of Pakistan's cabinet, without the involvement of the British government. In the event of a vacancy, the Chief Justice acted as the administrative officer of the government.
