Pakistan's political system remained in farce mode today with news that the High Court might kick out the second prime minister in two weeks.
Judges dismissed PM number one, Yusuf Raza Gilani, last week because he would not comply with a court order to reopen corruption proceedings against President Asif Ali Zardari.
And yesterday they issued a two-week ultimatum to PM number two, Raja Pervez Ashraf, to reveal whether he would do what his predecessor refused to.
It is thought that Mr Ashraf is unlikely to comply and therefore will be booted out for contempt on July 12.
Judicial pressure on Mr Zardari increased further today when the High Court ordered him to quit as co-chairman of the ruling Pakistan People's Party because it was unconstitutional to hold the party political role while president.
The order was first issued in May 2011 and Mr Zardari now faces contempt charges himself.
