Musharraf-Ally Aziz Chosen as Pakistan's New PM

Western-leaning banker and technocrat Shaukat Aziz becomes Pakistan's 23rd prime minister, getting 191 votes in the 342-seat National Assembly. His political opponents boycotted the vote. A close ally of President Pervez Musharraf, Aziz narrowly escaped a recent assassination attempt. NPR's Philip Reeves reports.
