Abstract:

The Pakistan government faces large-scale internal conflict in Balochistan and Sindh provinces as well as in the North West Frontier. However, the People's Party government, rather than addressing the many difficult issues it faces, is continuing with many of the practices of the Musharraf government; it has simply replaced one undemocratic and corrupt elite with another. The excessive influence of the military and the ISI underlie many of the problems, especially in relation to Afghanistan and India. The government needs to become more accountable, move away from cronyism, develop more control over the military, and reshape its foreign policy, especially with regard to India.
