Sheela Bhatt in New Delhi | August 18, 2008 16:15 IST
This is just a semi-final. The real battle will begin soon, says M J Akbar, author of several books and editor of Covert, while commenting on the resignation of President Pervez Musharraf [Images].
While talking to rediff.com, he said, "Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif have killed the common enemy and now the battle between them will soon begin, but I can't give you the timeline of final outcome."
The exit of President Pervez Musharraf from active politics of South Asia has evoked excitement and reactions all over the region.
If former Chief Justice Chaudhary comes back to Supreme Court, Asif Zaradari of PPP may be in trouble. Justice Chaudhary and fellow judges may look into the terms and conditions of National Reconciliation Ordinance under which he got reprieve from allegations of corruption cases.
Akbar says, "Zardari succumbed to Musharraf. It was Nawaz Sharif, who put the firm deadline and forced the elected government to act against Musharraf. The next round for the power of Pakistan will begin soon."
