WikiLeaks exposé

KARACHI: Thanks to WikiLeaks, we now know that the next president of the country will be none other than the current president’s sister, Faryal Talpur. We knew, of course, that the PPP would never hold elections to select a new party chief, but it is disconcerting to find out that Mr Zardari thinks none of his cronies are trustworthy or have enough leadership qualities to be able to succeed him.
