Pakistan Democracy Continues to Address the Past
Pakistan is still dealing with the aftermath of the US supported Musharraf military dictatorship.
In a movement in a postive direction for a people's democracy, the Zardari government submitted a constitutional reform package to parliament which would not allow the Pakistan president to dismiss the prime minister, dissolve parliament — as enacted multiple times in the past — or appoint the head of the country’s armed forces." Moreover, the Ammendment would put no restrictions on the terms while in office for prime ministers.
