1988: In Pakistan's first open election in more than a decade, voters elect populist candidate Benazir Bhutto as prime minister. Bhutto, the first female prime minister of a Muslim country, would serve until 1990 and be elected again in 1993. After nine years of self-exile in Dubai and London, she returned to Pakistan in October 2007 to run again for prime minister, but was assassinated two months later.
