Asif Ali Zardari becomes the President of Pakistan today after winning the presidential election. He secured 479 votes out of 702. His opponents, Retired Chief Justice Saeed-uz-Zaman Siddiqui received 153 elctoral votes and Senator Mushahid Hussein received 43. Asif’s victory in three provinces is overwhelming, especially in Sindh where his opposing candidates couldn’t get a single vote. Only in Punjab Assembly Saeed-uz-Zaman Siddiqi is able to get more votes than Asif.

The vote by the two houses of parliament and four provincial assemblies forms the 1,170-member, but 702-vote, electoral college. According to a Dawn update:

‘Asif Ali Zardari secured 281 votes out of the 426 valid votes polled in the parliament,’ chief election commissioner Qazi Mohammad Farooq said. He has secured 458 out of 702 electoral college votes, according to partial Election Commission results.

    I’m actually surprised there are people here who actually praise this man’s election to the office.

    Come on! He’s a land-lord, a feudal prince who’s supposed to be a democratic leader? A mere crook known by his title of “Mr. 10%” and rightly too. He has hogged millions, billions of dollars of wealth from our poor nation and given absolutely NOTHING in return. Pakistan will rejoice the day he isn’t president….by whatever means he steps down/is forced to ;)
