Former US ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter has said there is no more Bhutto in the Pakistan People’s Party now and President Asif Ali Zardari has failed as party chief as well as the president.
At a press briefing on Thursday, the former ambassador said PML-N President Nawaz Sharif had emerged as a strong leader and he had yet to decide whether he wanted to indulge in political wrangling or focus on the economy, good governance and improving relations with India.
He said rigging in the recent polls showed violation of rules and regulations. Speaking on the occasion, Denial Markey, an expert on Pakistan affairs, said the elections had further pushed the country into an ethnic divide.
Both the speakers rejected a US newspaper reports that US had played any role in Nawaz’s victory against his political rival Imran Khan.
