Pakistan Elections: The Day After

What to say about Pakistan’s recent election that hasn’t already been said elsewhere: the elections were not rigged as previously feared, no protests of the results, and there was very little violence leading up to, during, and after, the elections. The question is: where will Pakistan go from here? Specifically, what will Musharraf do now that the National Assembly is under the control of the PML(N) and the PPP, two parties he has completely antagonized during his near eight year reign. Can he work with them? Will he work with them?

I strongly believe this election asks more questions than it answers.
