Reference: Musharraf's electoral farce, Bangkok Post, November 18, 2007
Musharraf's election is not the only farce in the theater of the absurd currently being played out in Pakistan where the person who has now taken center stage as the champion for democracy is at the same time ducking corruption charges. Many of the government's actions may be politically motivated as claimed but at the same time much of the new enthusiasm for politics may be financially motivated. As usual in South Asia, the real information is hidden under many layers of misinformation. The interested observer must peal away the layers and follow the money.
