On September 20, the joint session of the parliament ended without finding a solution that could end the over 5-week long public protests in Islamabad (that are now becoming countrywide) demanding the resignation of the Prime Minister, the Chief Minister of Punjab and several federal and provincial ministers, for their alleged gross misconduct. However, before ending the parliament's joint session, the Prime Minister made a long speech therein, and a resolution was passed "emphatically" reiterating the parliament's "unequivocal, unwavering and unqualified resolve to uphold the supremacy of the Constitution, the democratic system, sanctity of state institutions, rule of law, and sovereignty of parliament."

Two grandiose elephant tusks guard the doors of a palace built to celebrate the cultural heritage of Africa's Bantu tribes, which gradually settled across much of the continent, but beyond them the huge building is a ruin. "Welcome to the Ciciba!" a young boy in rags hailed visitors outside, using the French acronym for the International Centre of the Bantu Civilisations, built in Gabon's capital Libreville three decades ago.

Federal Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, the press release added, clarified that the government inherited 14.5 trillion rupee debt and there has been no significant increase in this amount during the last year. So who is telling the truth?
With the eurozone's moribund economy once more sparking global fears, the region's cash-strapped leaders are now hoping the EU's investment bank can pull the bloc out of the doldrums. The OECD warned this past week the combination of feeble growth, high unemployment and super-low inflation made the sickly 18-nation single currency area the "most worrying feature" of the world economy.
