That wasn't a misspelling. Democrazia as in democrazy.
Here's the latest version of Bhutto-style democracy: Rush in elections so the 19-year old son who hasn't lived in Pakistan since 1999 ride the sympathy wave caused by his mother's death. Then, while the youth finishes his studies at Oxford, his father, known as Mr. Ten Percent because of his reputation for corruption, gets to take over the cookie jar once again as the de facto party leader.
Of course this democratic process has to happen quickly because as the London Financial Times reports:
The shelf-life of the political capital accruing to the PPP in the wake of Ms Bhutto’s assignation is unpredictable, a factor encouraging Mr Zardari, a controversial figure with a reputation for corruption, to demand that the elections be held as scheduled.No wonder the other major opposition figure, Nawaz Sharif is now saying through a spokesman that a "short postponement" of elections would "be acceptable." But note (posted January 2): As soon as the government decided to postpone the elections, Sharif et al balked at any delay.
Stay tuned for the next episode of Democrazia in Pakistan.
