Sorry but you got your "facts" wrong. Benazir Bhutto was first deposed in 1990 and again in 1996, but she was never imprisoned. She went in to self imposed exile in 1999 and returned in 2007, after the U.S. pushed President General Musharaf to enter in to a power sharing arrangement. And Khaild was a care-taker PM after Bhutto's Govt. was dismissed in 1996. After the elections, Nawaz Sharif became PM for the second time. Khalid was not elected and never "fell out of public favor". His job was to hold elections of 1997.
Also, Benazir Bhutto succeeded Prime Minister Junejo in 1988, who fell out of favor with then President Zia. Junejo was never imprisoned as you had mentioned. Zia died in a mysterious plane crash before the elections of 1988 paving the way for Benazir and her father's PPP to freely participate in the elections.
