P

akistan's ruling party, the Pakistan People's Party, has picked a new candidate for prime minister after an anti-narcotics court issued an arrest warrant for its first nominee, Makhdoom Shahabuddin. The new nominee is Raja Pervez Ashraf, a former water and power minister. Earlier this week, Pakistan's Supreme Court disqualified current prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani for failing to launch a corruption investigation against President Asif Ali Zardari.
