Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The old elite was basically eradicated and new elite appeared...

I personally do not think that it is so easy to eradicate the old elite. I do not follow closely the situation in Pakistan, but if you look at the ex-communist regimes, there are implicit evidences that
the old structures still exercise an immense amount of political and economic power through their connections, resiliense to the new conditions, and never ending ambitions to stay involved in states' affairs. No one gives up so easily the bone...
