    Nawabzada resigns - at last !

    Who wants a sham democracy when Musharaf is doing such a fantastic job.

    Yes and have a happy retirement, it's LONG overdue! If the man all the failed political parties look to unite them has finally given up on them that is indeed a bad omen on them. Now the old fox wants to ditch them for the even worse discredited lot from the religious parties. All these alliances, and more allinaces is a clear demonstration as to how bankrupt the old political parties are. They all need to reform fast ahead of the coming elections or risk being marginalised and becoming irrelevant.

      People, don't get to excited about this. Political vaccums in countries like Pakistan with unstable enviorments are very dangerous.

      You don't just want one group, the army to be the only unified group in Pakistan. The rest of the Pakistanis who do not have any stake with the Army, and do not fit into mainstream Pakistani politics will go back into their ethnic, tribal, regional caves.

      And we all know what happens when regionalism takes over and more and more people are sidelined from the mainstream.

          Not very likely. The armed forces are not the only institution that directs and forms opinion and policy in the country. In the last two years the judiciary, the media and the local governments have/are being reformed, establishing greater independence than ever before (more so than under the sham democracy we had before) and providing checks and balances on the government. Any local and provincial grievances are being addressed with the implememenation of the devolution to district level. Crucially police powers have been taken away from the provinces and given to the districts where they rightly belong, and will give people more say in the affairs of their district. As the local governments assume and implement their new powers local alliances and groupings will emerge, which will spur the national parties to move fast and reform themselves and accomodate these interests. I am confident that as the elections get nearer the national parties will take the necassary moves to maximise their chances.
