    Elections in Pakistan

    18 Feb 2008 19:24:00

    Sources: NET 105.8

    The Pakistanis went Monday to the polls to vote for a new National Assembly. Initially scheduled for early last month, the elections were cancelled after Bhuttos assassination. Journalists who got a close view of the vote said there several problems and violence that stopped many voters from casting their ballots. Preparing street protests, the opposition parties spoke of vote-rigging.

    After casting his ballot, President Pervez Musharraf called for reconciliation and said he is willing to cooperate with whoever wins the elections. With Musharraf partys popularity plunging, the opposition parties are highly likely to earn the majority in the new National Assembly. In that case, they may get engaged into a drive to topple Musharraf.
