OCCUPATION: Prime Minister of Pakistan
NUMBER OF TIME COVERS: 0
PREVIOUS APPEARANCES ON THE TIME 100: 0
PRO: The day he was sworn in, Benazir Bhutto's successor as head of the Pakistan Peoples Party called for the release of imprisoned judges most notably, Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry, whom President Musharraf jailed. Their release will almost certainly hasten Musharraf's abdication of the presidency.
CON: Jailed for four years in the '90s on charges that he abused his authority while serving as Bhutto's premier. And it remains to be seen whether feuds with the PPP's governing partner, the Pakistan Muslim League of Nawaz Sharif, will be a distraction during already unstable times.
