파키스탄 국회가 오늘 요수프 라자 길라니 전 국회의장을 새 총리로 선출했습니다.
길라니 신임 총리는 지난달 총선에서 페르베즈 무샤라프 대통령이 이끄는 여당을 누른 파키스탄 인민당으로부터 후보 지명을 받았습니다.
길라니 신임 총리는 선출된 직후 무샤라프 대통령이 지난해 비상계엄령을 내린 뒤 구금됐던 모든 법관들을 즉각 석방하라고 지시했습니다.
Pakistan's new Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has ordered the immediate release of all judges detained after President Pervez Musharraf imposed emergency rule last year.
Gilani made the announcement just moments after the National Assembly elected him as the country's new head of government.
The new prime minister is a member of the Pakistan Peoples Party of the late opposition leader Benazir Bhutto. He also is a former speaker of parliament and a close friend of party co-chair Asif Ali Zardari.
Gilani was widely expected to win today's (Monday's) vote because his party and its allies have a huge majority in parliament after elections in February.
He served as speaker during Ms. Bhutto's second term as prime minister. He also spent several years in prison on corruption charges that he has said were politically motivated.
President Musharraf will swear him in on Tuesday.
