Pakistan
Nawaz Sharif is a politician who has avoided open-ended interviews and pressconferences in favor of closely controlled unilateral statements and speeches during his four year term.
 

The judicial ouster of an elected prime minister in controversial circumstances was always likely to generate political uncertainty.

 

Pakistan has a new Prime Minister and the position of the ruling party seems to be intact in the Parliament.

 

 

Despite peacefully accepting the Prime Minister’s ouster, political parties have continued to criticise the method used to achieve it.

 

CHAIRMAN of the Senate Raza Rabbani has warned in the past that the failure of elected representatives and political parties to give parliament its due would undermine democracy.

 

The impending 70th anniversary of the creation of Pakistan has been upstaged by the disqualification of an incumbent prime minister on July 28.

 

The country’s newly elected leader, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, finds himself in an interesting, and novel, position.

 

The amber lights were already flashing and now, with a change of prime ministers, the political uncertainty hanging over the economy has been exacerbated.

 

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi may only be in power for 45 days – one of the shortest serving prime ministers in our history – but that doesn’t mean he will not have an opportunity to make his mark.

 

Pakistan is in the middle of a raging misogynist battle, with a former member of Imran Khan’s Tehreek-i- Inssaaf (PTI) party, Ayesha Gulalai, accusing Khan of sending her obscene text messages from his Blackberrysince 2013, in the full knowledge that the messages could not be hacked and daring him to make them public.
