    The only qualification which Mr Hamza has is that he is the son of Mr. Shehbaz Sharif who was a nominee of his own father Mian Sharif senior. Mr. Nawaz Sharif who had been picked up by General Jilani to serve as a minister and then as chief minister of Punjab, later became the blue eyed boy of General Zia and ended up as prime minister of Pakistan. This happened only after his mentor General Zia dismissed the elected government of Mr. Junejo. Nawaz Sharif had no compunction in betraying his senior and party leader junejo and took upon himself the sacred task of completing General Zia's mission.He kept on singing praises of General Zia after he had been killed in a mysterious air crash.After a few years it dawned on Mr. Nawaz Sharif that adopting a democratic persona was a great deal more profitable than continued loyalty to his late master.Hence the begining of his ire against military dictators.Now prime minister has several family members occupying hjgh places in federal and Punjab governments. His own daughter Maryam has been installed in one of the more prosperous prime minister's programmes. Mr Hamza has no official position but is a de facto additional chief minister Punjab. Maryam seems to be somewhat smarter in that she does not issue ridiculous statements like declaring the clergy to be indispensable for the success of the military operation against religious fanatics. The rest of the family are also holding their breath.But then talented Hamza must know what is good for him, the fact that he does not know ABC of politics not withstanding.
