Pakistan Votes, a Day in Pictures

Brave Pakistanis ignored fears of polling place violence, and quelled suspicions of possible election rigging, and turned out to vote yesterday.

Total turn out was low, but as you can see in these pictures, steadfast. In Peshawar, Islamic militants stopped many women from voting. Officials estimated that only 523 of 6,431 women who were registered to vote at six polling stations had cast ballots. Though results might not be known for a while, current President Pervez Musharraf said, "whatever the result, whatever the result, we will accept it with grace. Whoever is the prime minister, I will work with that person in a reconciliatory mode. We should end the confrontationist politics. Let's enter into a conciliatory politics." Al-Jazeera has a round up of all of Musharraf's opponents.

For some reason I do not feel Musharraf will go easily - not after nearly a decade of holding a powerful position - I would not be surprised if he created a special office or title for himself to retain some form of power in Pakistan.
