The future of Pakistan under Asif Ali Zardari

Arif Rafiq of The Pakistan Policy Blog is a policy and communications consultant based in New York and the author of the upcoming independent report “Pakistan: The Way Forward.”

Welcome to Zardaristan

On Saturday, a group of less than 500 politicians annointed Asif Ali Zardari as the next president of Pakistan. It was less the victory of democracy, and more that of small-minded elites.

These politicians have bandwagoned around Zardari — a man bankrupt of achievement, aptitude, moral rectitude, and public esteem, blamed by many for the downfall of his wife’s political career during the 1990s, effectively separated/estranged from her and indifferent to politics a year and a half back and now the inheritor of her checkered legacy.

They have lavished Zardari with undeserved platitudes and legitimacy.
