Big Change in Pak­istan

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Pak­istani PM Nawaz Sharif ’s fall from grace fol­low­ing his dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion over the Panama Papers scan­dal by the Supreme Court is a wa­ter­shed mo­ment in Pak­istan’s his­tory. The un­prece­dented ju­di­cial ac­tion against a sit­ting PM is a rare first. Though the ba­ton of the PM could pass on to Sharif ’s younger brother She­hbaz, the for­mer’s exit has the po­ten­tial to dras­ti­cally al­ter the power dy­nam­ics in a coun­try where the mil­i­tary holds sway, be­sides lead­ing to chaos and con­fu­sion in the near term.
