Court to Decide Pakistan Election

Pakistan's presidential election is in the hands of their Supreme Court after General Pervez Musharraf won the election by a landslide, even though the election was boycotted by the opposition.

According to CNN.com, the opposition parties said it was undemocratic and unconstitutional to have Musharraf run while still army chief. Musharraf received 671votes while his main rival only received eight.

Reuters reported that it is unlikely that the Supreme Court will annul the results. They also report that the results of Pakistan's election are important to the West because they want "to see Musharraf maintain nuclear-armed Pakistan's support for efforts to stabilize Afghanistan and tackle al Qaeda."
