Emergency to go Tomorrow…. come again another day
It seems now that Mr Musharaff has arrested all the people he needed, removed the judges that disagreed, appointed himself as supreme ayatollah president, cajoled all the defaulters into line ensuring they stand for election and changed the army top brass – we are now set to see Emergency powers removed tomorrow….
Emergency didn’t prove to be any obstacle to life in Islamabad, at least driving around I didnt see any visible signs of army or tanks on the street… So maybe now is a good time to ask WHY?
Why do we all have to suffer international inginity and honorary “banana republic” status just for one man to cling onto power… (Incidentally BB and Nawaz were no different).
Cant these people see that every time they take these extreme measures to perpetuate their meagre political existence they actually are doing more harm than good?
Mr Musharaff is changing the constitution so that we cant ask that question either….
