A must read article by Shaheen Sehbai published in The News yesterday, sheds light on the present political chaos. “The over-riding sense of failure is that after a free and fair elections a genuinely popular and elected government should have created a tidal wave of trust and confidence, at the domestic and international levels, which would have translated into massive political, economic and moral support for Pakistan” – He goes on to share the gloomy reality “Whatever is being said, heard and thought about in Islamabad, is testimony to the fact that our politicians are failing to meet the challenge that the present window of opportunity has provided them. If they ultimately fail, God help them, and us all” God Help Pakistan

i think he is right but these politicians are not real politicians they all are here just by chance .
Basically the problem lies with the elecion system which eventually leads us to have an elected govt.This election system is quite ineffective because of many reasons which include rigged election,misuse of govt machinery and educated people’s lack of interest in voting to name a few.That’s why we always get an ineffective and inept people in power.
Same Sehbai who once owned southasiajournal.com (a pressure group sort of website) from DC made a deal with President Mushraff to come to Pakistan and I know for the fact, the previous government not only paid him but arranged a job via Maliha Lodhi.
Start blaming the government, show lack of trust. Look towards the GHQ. Celebrate army’s arrival. Stay happy for a few years. Blame army. Call for elections. Celebrate new elected government. And the cycle repeats!
