New Government and Daunting Challenges

The three main political parties of Pakistan i.e. Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP), Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) have all set their sights on the upcoming elections. Not just them, we also see the likes of Chaudhrys and Maulana Fazal ur Rehman vying for the hot seat of Prime Minister of Pakistan. 
Prime Minister of Pakistan is a very lucrative job for any of the politician in Pakistan. The one who lands the job is considered a lucky one, though recently there has been a suggestion that Pakistan Peoples’ Party is trying to make every party stalwart of theirs as a potential Prime Minister. The list includes two actual Prime Ministers, Gilani and Ashraf and then other potential candidates like Amin Fahim, Makhdoom Shahab, Ahmad Mukhtar, Qamar Zaman Kaira and God knows who else.
