Pakistan hopeful for the future

The streets of Karachi are quiet Sunday as official results from a landmark election continue to trickle in. Former Prime Minster Nawaz Sharif is poised to win - as local newspaper headlines reference his campaign mascot. But here where election related violence killed at least 17 people yesterday, residents were hesitant to embrace a hopeful future. The hopes of diminished inflation and better unemployment rates are there, this man said, but these people not capable of doing it. In Sharif's stronghold Lahore, voters were slightly more enthusiastic saying its now up to Sharif to fulfill his campaign promises of free market enterprises and speedy growth. Tall orders for a country that's not yet out of the woods.
