Time is crucial in the game of politics

Now the question is that if this conspiracy to entrap Chief Justice's family was going on for several years, why it was revealed now. Many political analysts in Pakistan believe that it is all related to the forthcoming election later this year or early next year. The corrupt and bitterly unpopular government of Zardari wants to win this election by any means. Amid reports of consistent opposition demands for an impartial election commission, the government knows that it would not be possible to hijack the election in the presence of an independent judiciary under Chief Justice Chaudhry who at one time resisted the pressure of General Musharraf who sacked him.

The objective of Malik Riaz conspiracy is to defame the Chief Justice and taint the Supreme Court which is the only organ of the government that enjoys confidence and respect of the people. As reported in the Pakistani media, many high level political leaders of the ruling Pakistan People's Party were aware of this conspiracy.
