Musharraf In

Pakistani court says Musharraf can run

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistan's Supreme Court on Friday dismissed legal challenges to President Gen. Pervez Musharraf's bid for a new five-year term, allowing the military leader to run in the Oct. 6 election while retaining his role as army chief.

Overall this is probably good news for the US and the (actual) War on al-Qaeda (you know, the one in Afghanistan?).

Not necessarily good news for democracy in the short term though...

I think Musharraf is a very important figure both for us and for the future of Pakistan, I just hope we don't end up with another Mugabe - clinging to power forever at the expense of all else.

Time will tell...
