Despite the majority of Pakistan's people having clearly expressed preference favour of the late Benazir Bhutto’s Pakistan’s People Party (PPP)
, braving what was, the physically life-threatening mission of voting, Musharraf appears to be stuck or incrusted to his greedily-guarded seat.
The PPP today will search to form a coalition with the other favoured democratic party, to force Musharraf’s exit, but Bush hopes the new government would cooperate with Musharraf, US’ main Muslim ally against Al-Qaeda.
Pakistan’s desperate struggle for democracy risks, once again, to bend toward ‘higher’ prioritised agendas, coming second to the fight against terrorism.
Sadly ironic though.
