Zardari at 5th position

Yet another recognition for the president of Pakistan, Mr Asif Ali Zardari. In the latest issue of the Foreign Policy magazine, a list of world’s top 13 losers is published and thanks to his ever growing “popularity”, Zardari is well positioned at the fifth spot. Here is how the magazine recognized his contributions:

Zardari was known to be a bad guy long before he became Pakistan’s president. Many of the closest friends of his late wife, Benazir Bhutto, could not stand him. Now, as it turns out, neither can most of the Pakistani people. Locked in a bitter struggle with opposition leader Nawaz Sharif, Zardari showed his weakness by capitulating to demands to reinstate Pakistan’s former Chief Justice per Sharif’s demands. Now in a desperate attempt to reassert control of his own party he may be plotting the ouster of his Prime Minister according to Indian press reports. He’s on the ropes, his opposition is gaining strength, and meanwhile fraught, dangerous, complex Pakistan is hardly being governed at all. 

Too bad, he missed out on the top spot 😦
