It looks like the worst nightmare for those who hope for democratic reforms in the Muslim world is coming true — Islamists keep getting elected. First, an Islamic party won a sweeping victory in Turkey, and now, hard line Islamists are winning regional elections in Pakistan. What remains to be seen is whether wielding actual power has a moderating influence on these parties. As getting re-elected takes precedence over shoving their agendas through, hopefully they’ll be forced to put aside some of their more controversial policies.
