No Country for Musharaff Supporters
It looks like a bad night for Musharraff. Even in an biased election, it looks like the Pakistan People Party- now run mainly by Asif Zardari and the Pakistan Muslim League (N)- run fromer PM Nawaz Sharif, have routed the Mushareff friendly Pakistan Muslim League (Q).
Both of these opposition leaders is pretty corrupt, and their previous stays in power does not portend good things (in his time as an appointee of his wife- Benazir Bhutto- Asif Zardari was know as "Mr. Ten Percent" for his corruption), but this is nevertheless a step in the right direction, and may even point to a restoration of democracy to Pakistan.
