A Sign of Reconciliation in Pakistan

Pakistan plunged into a serious political crisis a month ago, after President Asif Ali Zardari dismissed the opposition Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz)-led government in the eastern province of Punjab and the Supreme Court barred former premier Nawaz Sharif and his brother from holding public office.

The move sparked widespread outrage and protests.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court suspended the ban on Sharif brothers and restored the democratically elected government in Punjab.

Many say the move marks a beginning of a process of political reconciliation in the country.
