With Sharif back in power, Pakistan looks to build

for Bloomberg Businessweek

This story commisioned by Businesweek follows the last days of Nawaz Sharif's campaign as he positioned himself as the frontrunner for the general elections. Sharif, known for his policy of backing up large developments and public infraestructures such as the recent Lahore Metro Bus line or the six-lane motorway that connects Lahore with Islamabad is expected to respond to the current power crisis of the country and its financial problems with new construction projects.

The story, largely focused on the Lahore Metro Bus and Sharif's campaign was never published in the magazine for editorial reasons. Instead, a story about the power crisis and the challenges the new goverment are expected to resolve was published in the Global Economics section under the headline 'Sharif's Pakistan Election Prize: Solving the Energy Crisis' featuring a night shot of the Lahore Metro Bus as it pass over the dim lit old city.
