Voters in Peshawar, Pakistan cast their ballots in the February 2008 parliamentary elections.
"The Pakistan Elections: What Next?"
Asia Program, Woodrow Wison International Center for Scholars, Washington, D.C., 25 February 2008
On February 18, Pakistanis voted in parliamentary elections. The results were a major blow to President Pervez Musharraf and his supporters. Opposition parties, led by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), and a resurgent Awami National Party (ANP), scored major victories. The prime losers were the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) and Islamists. How can these elections be assessed, and what do they portend for Pakistan’s future and for U.S. policy? These questions were examined at an Asia Program event held one week after the elections.
