KALW-FM Your Call: Pakistan After Benazir

Your Call, Jan. 2, 2008 – Pakistan After Benazir (KALW 91.7 FM)

What has been the fall-out of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination? On the next Your Call we speak with a panel of South Asians about the events since the bomb in Liaquat National Park. Bhutto’s 19-year-old son has been pushed to the helm of the Pakistan People’s Party. President Musharraf says elections will be delayed until February but can the weakened Musharraf stay in power until then? The United States has had close involvement in the politics of Pakistan for nearly four decades: what role should it play now? It’s Your Call, with Sandip Roy and you.
