Pakistan’s ruling PPP and opposition PML-N are engaged in a war of words over the sweeping powers wielded by President Asif Ali Zardari,with former premier Nawaz Sharif describing the current dispensation no different from dictatorship.

“Nothing has changed after the general election on February 18 (last year). The status quo still exists. The same judges (appointed during former President Pervez Musharraf’s tenure) and courts are still there. The system is the same and Pakistan’s constitution and laws remain unchanged,” he said. Presidential spokesman Farhatullah Babar termed the remarks as “highly exaggerated and harsh criticism”.
