Not unexpectedly, the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz Group has decided to quit from all cabinet positions in the coalition government it had so recently formed with Asif Zardari’s PPP.

According to The News:

Following the failure of London talks on the reinstatement of judges; Pakistan Muslim League (PML)-N has decided to resign from federal cabinet in central executive committee meeting underway here. Earlier, federal ministers reached to attend the meeting without official car and other privileges. The meeting has discussed that coalition with Peoples Party was made for the restoration of deposed judges but Peoples Party has failed to fulfill its commitment therefore PML-N has decided to quit the coalition.

The report here says that they have “quit the coalition” but other rumblings suggest that they have only left the cabinet and will continue to work with the PPP on the ouster of Gen. Musharraf. That, however, remains to be seen.

Our ongoing Poll on this subject (now closed) had suggested that most people did NOT believe that the coalition woud fall just yet over the judges issue. But at least for now the news is that it has.

However, this being Pakistan everything will be spun every which way and by the time the dust settles – if it ever settles – things will nearly certainly look very different from what they do now.

I appreciate your feeling for Pakistan and Pakistani but unfortunately you too, expecting to control sole centralize power in your hand so that you can solve the public grievances as you too did in the past.. ? like other politician did in last 60 years. However you want to show the people that you are the only sympathizer for them but are you prepared to share power with common people..? Or you don

    It is a nightmare scenario, as spearheads of the three most corrupt and incompetent governments in recent history, are gearing up to rule the country together. Deals have been struck, the die is cast, and the smokescreens are up to cover the ‘topi drama’ that would put the World Wrestling Federation’s top wrestler-actors to shame.

    The winner in all of this is Musharraf and his American masters. Remember who was negotiating for Zardari-Hussain Haqqani who is an American agent.

    I am very disappointed in Zardari. Like many I had thought that he was now a changed man. But maybe he is now Musharaf’s new Shaukst Aziz.
