Pakistan Court Bans P.M. from Office

Pakistan’s Supreme Court on Tuesday disqualified Prime Minister Raza Gilani from holding office, two months after finding him in contempt of court. The Supreme Court found Gilani guilty of failing to pursue corruption charges against President Asif Ali Zardari in April, but gave him only a token sentence and spared him jail time. Pakistan’s governing People’s Party is reportedly in an emergency session to discuss possible solutions.
