Bilawal makes formal entry into politics

Slain former premier Benazir Bhutto's 24-year-old son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Thursday made his formal entry into Pakistani politics, pledging to protect his country and its fledgling democratic system from dictators and terrorists.

A combative Bilawal also took on the judiciary for lack of action against those arrested for his mother's murder.

"With Benazir Bhutto as my witness, I vow that the Pakistan People's Party will not allow any dictator to snatch people's rights and that PPP will not be afraid of any terrorist," Bilawal told a gathering of tens of thousands that gathered at Garhi Khuda Bux in Sindh province to mark Bhutto's 5th death anniversary.

The ruling party chose the massive rally held outside the Bhutto family mausoleum to formally launch Bilawal's career.

Though he will not be eligible to contest polls till he turns 25 next September, Bilawal, chairman of the party, is expected to lead the PPP's campaign for next year's general election.
