Well rumors have been circulating quite seriously for the past few months of a pending resignation of Shaukat Aziz from the corridors of Islamabad and soon to move into Washington as the Managing Director World Bank. It would indeed be sad day for Pakistan to loose such a brilliant economist another casualty to our power hungry President who has slowly alienated him out of the picture.
This move to World Bank would no doubt be a very respectable exit for Aziz out of the power circle hence leaving at the top with his reputation intact (which we have rarely seen in Pakistani politics). I wish him all the best and also appreciate all his efforts in positioning Pakistan back into a booming economy. We honestly can only hope that his replacement which will most likely be Hamid Chattha, can mimic Aziz even to a fraction of his strengths in taking Pakistan onwards. What do you have to say?
