Mr. Jamaali is the first prime minister of Pakistan representing the province of Balochistan.

The members were asked to divide into three groups to show support for either of the three candidates.

Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal's Maulana Fazalur Rehman remained runners up with 86 votes while Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarian received 70 votes.

In all 328 people stood for the three candidates giving Jamali the chance to lead the House.

Do you think he will be able to survive as a Prime Minister for Next 5 years ?

Yes I believe he is a nice person and
will continue the policies of Musharraf.
This is the first time in the history of Pakistan that somebody from a smaller province has been given a chance. Otherwise it's always Punjab Punjab. If he can't deliver then Molana Fazul Rahman is the next person who can lead this country after enforcing sharia.

As an ardent admirer of democratic values, I would like to wish the honourable, Prime Minister Mr jamali a great sucess. I hope he becomes a sprit of hope to all Pakistanis for a change.

I believe Pres. Musharraf was doing a lot better job than our elected politicians in the past . As Mr. Jamali is going to follow through Musharraf's commitments , he will do good for Pakistan .

I really do not know him but looking at the news item today that he freed 2 convicts of NAB, seems like he does have the personality to be a Pakistani Prime the footsteps of Bhuttos, Sharifs and Musharraf.

I would like to point out to some of the edicts issued by MMA.
Banning music and VCR's in N.W.F.P.
Mr.Qazi wanting to declare Urdu as an Official Language of N.W.F.P.
I think USA should take note that the despicable Talibans are alive and well through these religious thugs.

A.R.Khan, United Kingdom - 18 December, 2002

I think no, because he is not independent. He's under lot of pressure of other parties and Chaudhry Brothers. He can't take his his own decisions. The actual PM is Ch. Shujaat.

Syed Haider, Pakistan - 18 December, 2002

It seems from comments posted that Mr Jamali is not very popular as I too agree. What Pakistanis deserve is a dynamic, energetic & spirited leader.

I hope someday there will arise a "maan da lal" who will bring us glory.

I fear all the above comments will never be noted by Jamali, Mushrraf & their cronies as well as baboos.

I am also for full islamic Government.

Zafarullah Jamali has 5 years to close
the potholes created and left open by his predecessors! It is not an easy task when both bureaucrats and the politicians are not working in the same direction.It does not matter which tribe and where he comes from, we as a nation have elevated him to the post of the Prime minister and we must help him to achieve peace and progress.

Khalid Rahim, Canada - 25 January, 2003

Mr Jamali

As long as big brothers want him to stay in power he will stay and this is the universal truth.

Afzal Ahmed, United Kingdom - 26 January, 2003

Azhar for PM

I think its very unfortunate for the PMLQ that their clean and respectable candidate Mian Azhar was defeated by the establishment in the polls in order to prevent an independant minded politician from becoming the Prime Minister. The party and the country now has to bear with Mr Jamali who is under the heavy influence of the Chaudry clan of Gujrat. The establishment has done a great harm to the country by depriving it of the leadership of Mr Azhar.

Imran Khan suitable for PM

I think Pakistan should not be based on Islamic values or rules coz we also have hindus and christians living here. Our nation should be based on democracy, proggresive and peaceful country. There is still no democracy in Pakistan coz the Punjab government bans musics and dancing. Is this what we call democracy? We Pakistanis should feel free and think and disagree with the government if we want so. To all people who are disrespecting Musharaff especially the ladies, please feel proud that he came into power now u ladies got more rights then before. I have no faith in Maulana Fazl ul Rehman coz the only thing he can do is talking about Islam, Islam, Islam and Anti US propaganda. I think Imran Khan is the most suitable person as PM of Pakistan.

Politics of Dynasties

Jamali is baloch, but absolutely powerless to bring about any change,as his hands are tied by the general. However Jamali is a nice change of scene, from the politics of dynasties and bhutto, his wives,their daughters, their husbands, and sons --- then Sharifain, wife, the Ghaffar Khan.. Wali Khan...then his wife then Asfandyar the son...then Zia then the son etc etc and so on & on &on &on &on& on. For God sake this is a very fertile there no one else to lead. Give them a chance.

Jamali no more survive

As per my humble opinion Jamali even did not look like a Prime Minister especially when he was ignored by Shaikh Zaid in Dubai. Reportedly he was waiting for five hours and then excellency met him. He is very week premier and can never run his government more than six months.

Ejaz, Pakistan - 05 February, 2003

Jamaali,the primeminister

I think he is a cool person and a very deserving person, coming from Baluchistan, he should work hard to improve the lots of Baluchis especially and for all Pakistanis in general. I wish and pray for his success. I hope he will be able to strength the civilian institution of democracy in Pakistan.

nasir zahid, Canada - 06 February, 2003


I think he'll surprise all to become the only PM in Pakistan's history to complete his term. The reasons are:
1. He is a simple man already learnt a lot oflessons from his predecessors.
2. He has a strong support from the Army; which will help him prop up to be a successful PM, and finally,
3. He has the capability & capacity to be a good PM
