In Pakistan, voters ousted almost all leading figures in Pakistan Muslim League-Q. From the New York Times article:
The results were interpreted here as a repudiation of Mr. Musharraf as well as the Bush administration, which has staunchly backed him for more than six years as its best bet in the campaign against the Islamic militants in Pakistan.
Musharraf is facing a determined insurgency by the Taliban and Al Qaeda and a deteriorating economy. The insurgency in Pakistan is a consequence of the U.S. led war in Afghanistan.
I do not believe that this election signifies Pakistanis unwillingness fight terrorism. This is evidenced by the many people who did vote despite threats of violence and the assassination of one of their candidates. What I feel it does signify is that the Pakistanis desperately want to preserve democracy, both from the terrorists, and the leaders who usurp constitutional authority in the name of protecting them. Hopefully, it is an example the American electorate can learn from.
