Bhutto’s son starts po­lit­i­cal ca­reer

Austin American-Statesman - - NEWS -

The 24-year-old son of former Pak­istani Prime Min­is­ter Be­nazir Bhutto launched his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer Thurs­day with a fiery speech be­fore thou­sands of cheer­ing sup­port­ers in Is­lam­abad ob­serv­ing the fifth an­niver­sary of his mother’s as­sas­si­na­tion. Bi­lawal Bhutto Zar­dari’s speech comes sev­eral months be­fore na­tional elec­tions are ex­pected to be held. He is too young to par­tic­i­pate in the elec­tions him­self — the min­i­mum age is 25 — but is likely to be a key as­set for the rul­ing Pak­istan Peo­ple’s Party.
