When former president of Pakistan Ghulam Ishaq Khan dismissed first government of Pakistan People’s Party, he made a strong point in his speech and his argument was that the government of Benazir Bhutto was involved in massive corruption and he mentioned Benazir Bhutto’s husband, Asif Ali Zardari and called him Mr. Ten Percent.
Then came the second term of Benazir Bhutto. She appointed one of her closest acolyte as president, the Farooq Khan Leghari from Southern Punjab. After sometime, Farooq Khan Leghari dismissed the government of Benazir Bhutto, and told nation about the corruption of Benazir Bhutto’s husband Asif Ali Zardari.
On both occassion, the reason why Benazir Bhutto’s governments were shown the door was the alleged corruption of her husband. Now once again the question mark is on the Asif Ali Zardari, who is himself a president, but facing immense pressure from public and media to step down and face the charges.
President very skillfully manouvered himself to this lofted position and there is only one position in Pakistan which has got immunity from punishment and that is the presidency, and Zardari has reached there after taking immense help from NRO and luck was also with him.
Now as NRO stands null and void and courts are free and the media is digging out truth about the cases and the hidden accounts in Switzerland, things are getting tough, very tough for the president and for many of his companions. Now there are many questions upon his constitutional eligibility to serve as the President of Pakistan.
Quo-warranto appeal (challenging the eligibility of President Zardari) could come out any time.
