Khan, Ghulam Ishaq

Khan, Ghulam Ishaq
▪ 2007

      Pakistani politician (b. Jan. 20, 1915, Ismail Khel, North-West Frontier Province, British India [now in Pakistan]—d. Oct. 27, 2006, Peshawar, Pak.), as president (1988–93) of Pakistan, in 1990 sacked the elected prime minister, Benazir Bhutto, on corruption charges, but after Khan's subsequent (1993) dismissal of Prime Minister Mohammed Nawaz Sharif was overruled by the Pakistan Supreme Court, the military forced both Sharif and Khan to step down. Khan trained as a chemist before joining the provincial civil service. He held several prominent financial posts under Pakistani Pres. Mohammad Zia-ul-Haq, and when Zia died in a plane crash in August 1998, Khan—then president of the Senate—was Zia's designated constitutional successor.
