Pakistan is headed to the polls on Wednesday, but no matter who wins, the South Asian nation looks to set for an economic and currency crisis, economists say.
KARACHI/ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - The Pakistani rupee slumped 3.8 percent against the dollar on Monday before slightly recovering in what appeared to be the third currency devaluation in seven months by the central bank amid fears of a balance of payments crisis. Ashfaque Hasan Khan, an economist with the National Institute of Science and Technology, said the interim government that now holds the reins during the election campaign might itself be forced to go to the IMF.
