Ok,the Prime Minister has been saying that the presidential elections will be held on 6th of September,the date today is 3 as its past midnight so you can say that the day of 3 has not started yet,my question to the people is “Who should be the next president?”

1. Asif Ali Zardari (PPP) Info on Zardari (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asif_Ali_Zardari)
2. Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui (PML-N) Info on Siddiqui (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saeeduzzaman_Siddiqui)
3. Mushahid Hussain (PML-Q) Info on Mushahid Hussain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushahid_Hussain)

If you ask me, getting musharraf to leave presidential office was a good but also a bad idea. Cause now the next president might be even worse then him or better. I don’t like Zardari personally because he hasn’t done anything that he promised before the elections of parliament. The reinstatement of all the deposed judges has not been done and it seems that PPP is just making excuses and more promises. PML-N on the other hand did a good job in choosing a candidate who was a judge himself and if anyone can reinstate the deposed judges its him in my opinion. Talking about PML-Q well they already showed that they can not do anything except ruining Pakistan for the previous years till 2007 elections. I don’t trust this party or their candidate no matter how influencing their candidate is or their party. For more information on the elections check this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pakistani_presidential_election,_2008

Also today Prime minister stated that on 5th September PPP will show the assemblies their power. I don’t like the Prime Minister either. And I am afraid that if Zardari becomes the president of Pakistan then Pakistani’s are in so deep trouble:(.
P.S: We are already in deep trouble:firemad:.

Well first, I think I trust leaders with simpler names... 'Saeeduzzamen Siddiqui' (sp?) is quite a wierd name. I'll just call him Duzz. Also, I find it odd that google does not show any results about him... Eh, but that's just me. I'm an english speaking American. I'm sure english sounds insanely wierd to people of other languages...

Like Bush?

Arc, that is possibly the silliest thing I've ever heard.

Imagine...

"Hi, I'm Dr. Evil, vote for me, I must be good - I have a simple English name"

:roleyess:

@topic - I don't know enough to comment, though I hope Pakistan gets a wise and venerable leader, that will be able to counter terrorism, fundamentalism, without bowing to the west.

I think the best choice is Asif Ali Zardari, but I don't really like him all that much either. I think he's the least bad for Pakistan.

We'll see what the people decide, I guess.

Good point... I'm just not good with foreign names is all, I guess.

I don't even really know what to say. I'm not even sure if Musharraf's departure was a good idea, seeing how he kept the country stable (and more pertinent to my interests, he kept relations with India decent and level).

I'm not too well-informed on the polls either, but like Jon, I hope someone good wins, who'll take a hard stance against terrorism.

'Saeeduzzamen Siddiqui' (sp?) is quite a wierd name. I'm sure 'Arcesious' would sound weird to them, too.

Sabre--I don't think Musharraf really had much choice--it was 'leave or be impeached'. I'm hoping whoever is elected can maintain good relations with India as well--neither country can afford to ramp up hostilities.

Well,I just hope we get someone decent enough to at least think about the people of the country.I will post the result as soon as I could on 6th of September.Btw,Musharraf only did what he did for his own personal profit.And the country was never that much stable with him(the judges issue and many others like the emergency he stated in the country).And keeping good relations with other countries is not that much important but keeping the country together is the biggest problem and main concern.

Which is how it should have been, IMHO.

Btw,Musharraf only did what he did for his own personal profit.And the country was never that much stable with him(the judges issue and many others like the emergency he stated in the country)..

Zardari has won the election.He is the new president of Pakistan.Only less then 10% votes of the assemblies (except one)have voted Zardari hence he got 459 votes and there is one assembly whose votes are being counted.So Zardari have won because he got more votes then required even without one assembly result.My response was like NO!!!!!!!!!.
But I will give him a chance because every body deserves it.Let us see if Pakistan is democratic again or its again in the hand of iron hand ruler(dictator).

He can't do anything if the military dislikes him. Let's hope he doesn't get on their bad side.
