Bhutto party nominates prime minister candidate
Mrs. Bhutto returned to Pakistan last year only to be assassinated in a suicide attack in December. Since then, Mr. Zardari has risen to become a key figure in Pakistan’s politics, and he may have considered Mr. Fahim a threat to his own political ambitions.
Mrs. Bhutto’s son was appointed party chairman after his mother’s death, but his father is running things while the 19-year-old continues his studies at Oxford University.
Mr. Zardari and Mr. Sharif, who was ousted in a 1999 coup by Mr. Musharraf, have pledged that their coalition will tackle the massive challenges facing Pakistan, including a wave of Islamist militancy, high inflation and electricity shortages.
They have also vowed to work to strengthen democracy.
