The assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on Thursday will likely add to the chaos in Pakistan, complicating an already difficult lobbying effort.

Bhutto’s party, the Pakistan People’s Party, has been represented by Burson-Marsteller and its affiliates, including BKSH & Associates and polling firm Penn, Schoen, Berland & Associates, since last January. Registrations filed with the Department of Justice last year show the party agreed to pay a one-time fee of $75,000 for polling services, along with $28,500 per month for other services. Among the companies’ duties: coordinating meetings for Prime Minister Bhutto with U.S. officials. No one at Burston-Marsteller could be reached for comment on Bhutto’s assassination Thursday.
