Today PPP accepted the supreme court verdict of PM Gillani disqualification. CEC decides to announce name of new PM today after coalition partners meeting. Pakistan’s top court dismissed the prime minister from office on Tuesday for failing to investigate the president for corruption, ushering in a new round of political turmoil in a nation vital to American hopes of withdrawing from neighboring Afghanistan.
The Supreme Court ruling against Yousuf Raza Gilani was unlikely to topple the fragile, coalition government. But it left it weakened and without a Cabinet. Most analysts expected the government to heed the court order and begin the process of replacing Gilani, or possibly expedite general elections that must be held before early next year. Raja Pervez Ashraf is now Prime minister of Pakistan.
