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 an expat (from U.K, 33 years) currently living in and running business in Pakistan since last 12 years. Hence I have seen both side of the coin and lived through 3 governments in Pakistan (Muslim League, Musharraf and now PPP). Has anyone noticed, evrytime PPP comes to power, Pakistan’s corruption rating increases? Does this not say something about the current President and his party? Also how stupid and gullible our Pakistani brethren are when they vote for these people? Zardari is no longer known as Mr. 10%, more likely 110%!
