'Zardari for president'
Asif Ali Zardari, the widower of assassinated former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto will be a candidate for president. The Pakistan People's Party, which Asif Ali Zardari leads, said that it wanted him to run in the election by legislators on Sept. 6. Pakistan's uneasy coalition partners discussed who should be the next president on Saturday. Nawaz Sharif was non-committal on Zardari's nomination, but said he wanted to see the presidency stripped of the power to dismiss parliament.
