Pakistan Elects New Prime Minister

Headline: Pakistan Elects New Prime Minister

Yusuf Raza Gillani has been approved by Pakistan's parliament as the country's new prime minister. Gillani is a former parliamentary speaker and was the candidate of the Pakistan People's Party (PPP), Benazir Butto's party. His election opens the way for the formation of a government made up of opponents to President Pervez Musharraf.

Prime Minister Gillani's new job comes with stiff challenges. He will have to hold together a large coalition, tackling Islamic militancy and severe economic problems, combined with token opposition from President Musharraf's allies. Gillani's election marks the first time in 12 years that the PPP will head the government.
