That's the perils of Democracy adil. They didn't have checks and balances in place, now if a competent and responsible Govt. comes it will put checks and balances and that's how process improves and democracy propels. I knew this was bound to happen when Zardari came in power in 2007. After all Democracy itself has no magic stick to solve inherent systemic problems itself. Democracy always goes through some testing times if you read history of nations which have successful democracy in place today, including Europe and US. Let's hope that a better Govt. than this comes in power, but chances are bleak atm.
