Benazir Bhutto’s 19-year-old son, Bilawal, is to be her successor. The party is such a family dynasty that not even Ms Bhutto’s husband, who was named successor in her will, can take over the party from a Bhutto by blood.
The widower said in a statement: “nobody other than Bilawal can keep the PPP and the federation (of Pakistan) intact.”
And therein lies much of the problem with Pakistani politics, even in its “democratic” incarnations.
