Pakistan’s Historic First: A Full Term

Btw, Pakistan’s National Assembly has completed a historic 5 year term today –without a coup and everything! In the English language news, you can read about it here and here (Dawn), here (Express Tribune) and here (The News).

Here are the front-pages of the print versions of each of these papers. Note that the top story in all of them is UN Special Rapporteur’s statement that drones are a violation of Pakistani sovereignty. That is also intriguing since the columnists–especially at Express Tribune followed by Dawn–skew towards a pro-drone position in stark and telling contrast with the majority of Pakistan.
