The challenge now is to get down working and turning the lengthy documents and lofty commitments into solid and practical steps. Political turmoil at home after the judgment of Supreme Court to disqualify Prime Minister Gillani, barred President Asif Ali Zardari to attend International Economic Forum, St. Petersburg, Russia. Since 1997, The forum is aimed at discussing some of themost pressing Economic issues that theworld is faced with today and coming up with respective solutions to overcome such problems. The Forum is an important gathering where topics such as global energy outlook, Eurasian economic integration, international global energy award, banking in the 21st century, and investment in human capital were discussed along with signing of various agreements on the issues. For Pakistan the forum provides an excellent opportunity to put forward its will for cooperation and collaboration with the countries along with reflecting on various issues of bilateral nature with Russia. Critics have highly valued the turmoil that the incumbent government has faced recently as Prime Minister Gillani was pronounced disqualified from taking the higher office of Government. He was readily replaced with Raja PervaizAshraf as Prime Minster. It was viewed that since the democracy has started to gain its foot in Pakistan, the system itself has some recovery modes as this was not the case earlier. Even after this, the government remains stable and the politicalwills led to the sustainable democracy. Institutions are working and the parliament is intact keeping intact thewill of the people. The incumbent government needs to struggle hard in making the promises it made during its early years. The need of the hour is that the replacement should work more hard to earn the good will of the people as the general public has lost the trust and desire on the government.
