akistan's ruling party, Pakistan People's Party, has nominated party loyalist Makhdoom Shahabuddin to replace ousted Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani. The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday to oust Gilani for contempt of court, after he refused to launch a corruption case against President Asif Ali Zardari. Just after Shahabuddin was nominated, he was served with an arrest warrant related to a drug importing scandal, indicating that more political turmoil is on the horizon.
