Election Returns Pakistan from Military to Civilian Rule

Hosted by

In parliamentary elections, voters have repudiated President Pervez Musharraf by giving two opposition parties control of Pakistan's National Assembly. Musharraf told visiting US Senators today he accepts his party's resounding defeat in today's elections. Despite fears of vote-rigging and violence, international observers say the success of two opposition parties accurately reflects the will of the voters. Can Musharraf, an American ally, hold on to his job?  What about Islamic extremists, the war on terror and control of nuclear weapons? We hear about the future of that country and relations with the US.
