The Pakistani government's suspected plans to disrupt tomorrow's elections will trigger widespread violence and the possible collapse of the nation, warned the widower of assassinated leader Benazir Bhutto. "People are absolutely on the warpath" and will take to the streets if the election is rigged, Asif Ali Zardari told the Times of London.
After a slew of recent suicide bombings, many Pakistanis are afraid to go to the polls. Recent surveys show strong support for both Bhutto's party and the Pakistan Muslim League led by Nawaz Sharif, with little support for President Pervez Musharraf's regime. Sharif claims that the Musharraf government is trying to intimidate people to stop them from voting.
