Forty per cent of respondents favoured her becoming the Prime Minister, while the same number opposed such move and 20 per cent declined to comment on the issue.

However, Benazir does appear to be a bit more popular than President Pervez Musharraf.

When asked that who would be the best person to lead Pakistan, 27 per cent of respondents to the poll conducted for WorldPublicOpinion.org by ACNielsen in the country through face-to-face interviews in 19 cities favoured Benazir over 21 per cent for Musharraf.

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who was deported to Jeddah by the Musharraf regime, was able to win support of 21 per cent in the best leader category.

When asked about the possibility of Sharif’s homecoming, 51 per cent approve of his potential return, while 35 percent were opposed to it and the rest are undecided.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry was able to get a meagre support of three per cent as the best person to lead the country.

Steven Kull, Director of WorldPublicOpinion.org, comments, “There seems to be little consensus among urban Pakistanis about who should lead Pakistan.” (ANI)
