The Pakistan Muslim League was founded in 1962, as a successor to the previously disbanded Muslim League in Pakistan. Unlike the original PML which ended in 1958 when General Ayub Khan banned all political parties, each subsequent Muslim League was in some way propped by the military dictators of the time: Ayub Khan, General Zia-ul-Haq and General Pervez Musharraf. Every time the pro-establishment political leaders were put together, who splintered apart when the general's blessings faded away. - Source: Wikipedia
Just days after taking power, Pakistan's new government lodged a protest with the U.S. and summoned a top American envoy Saturday to vent its anger over a U.S. drone strike that was said to have killed seven militants. The move bolstered expectations that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's government will, at least publicly, take a much harder line against such strikes than its predecessor.
A Pakistani journalist who has received death threats from Islamic terrorists is widely regarded as the front-runner to serve as the next ambassador to the U.S. from the terrorist-infected and impoverished South Asian nation.
Nawaz Sharif, a two-time former prime minister who has talked about ending Pakistan's role in the U.S.-led war against terrorism, was set to win a third term as the South Asian nation's leader on Sunday.
Pakistan's historic national elections on Saturday will likely produce a hung parliament and a government intent on distancing itself from the U.S.
The major candidates to become Pakistan's next prime minister oppose American drone strikes on Islamic extremists in their country, which bodes ill for the U.S. policy after Pakistan's historic parliamentary elections in May.
Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said Saturday that he will return to his homeland despite facing criminal charges and militant death threats.
The U.S. ambassador to Pakistan created a political storm this week when he said that two leading opposition politicians would form a "pro-U.S. government" if either becomes prime minister in next year's elections.
Pakistan's main opposition leader gave the government a three-day deadline Tuesday to accept a list of demands if it wants to avert its possible collapse after the loss of its ruling majority in Parliament.
Pakistan's prime minister tried Monday to keep his ruling coalition in power after a key party said it was defecting to the opposition, leaving the government without majority support in parliament.
Former Pakistan military ruler Pervez Musharraf said Wednesday he is gearing up for a return to politics and will launch a new party next month — two years after he stepped down as president after nationwide protests and left the country.
ISLAMABAD (London Sunday Telegraph) — Pervez Musharraf is considering stepping down as president of Pakistan rather than waiting to be forced out by his victorious opponents, his aides say.
