• A new government under Pakistan’s incoming leader Imran Khan will need to move quickly to tackle a brewing economic crisis.
• The PTI proved itself to be the largest party and may be able to form governments in multiple provinces other than the center. What is not unprecedented, however, are the challenges the nation faces going forward.
• Tens of thousands of people gathered about 700 hundred kilometers (420 miles) west of Tokyo on Monday to commemorate 73 years since the US dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Mayor Kazumi Matsui opened his address at the annual ceremony by describing the scene on August 6, 1945, and the agony of the victims, telling the audience to listen “as if you and your loved ones were there.”
“Certain countries are blatantly proclaiming self-centered nationalism and modernizing their nuclear arsenals, rekindling tensions that had eased with the end of the Cold War,” Matsui said Monday, without identifying the countries.
