Power-sharing deal in Pakistan

President General Pervez Musharraf has cleared a key hurdle to his smooth re-election after agreeing to a deal with former Pakistani premier Benazir Bhutto that paves the way for power-sharing. The draft of the National Reconciliation Ordinance(NRO) as part of a power-sharing deal has been finalised between the two.
This deal will bring benefits to Benazir and the Pakistan People's Party. It will not create a level-playing field for all the political parties, including the Pakistan Muslim League --Nawaz. I don't think this deal will make the way for transition from military dictatorship to civilian democracy.
It will actually violate the spirit of democracy in Pakistan.
