Can he succeed with this elephant in the room and still help unify Pakistan in its most difficult hour? Only time will tell. Let’s hope for the sake of Pakistan and world peace that he does succeed!

There is some hope that they may changed their mind set and are willing to do some good for the nation.

Unfortunately, at this stage in Pakistan history Mr. Zardari controls the PPP and now command the support of the other parties, that will bring him the Presidency of Pakistan. It is up to Mr. Zardari and his party to solve the problems of Pakistan, if they failed this time to resolve the economic and law and order issues facing ordinary people of Pakistan, ZAB’s party will be finished. Keep also in mind that Mr. Nwaz is wanting them to fail so he can takeover. Lets see what Mr. Zardari and his party can do.
