Musharraf vows to return to Pak before next polls

January 12, 2011

DUBAI: Former Pakistan President and chief of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Pervez Musharraf has vowed to return to his country before the next mid-term elections.

Musharraf said that thousands of people were joining his party, and were waiting for his arrival in Pakistan.

The former President also said that he would win the next elections and serve the people in better way, the Nation reports.

His comments came at a time when the federal government in Islamabad is scrambling to save its ruling coalition, following its key ally Muttaheda Qaumi Movement’s decision to sit on opposition benches in parliament.

Musharraf had served as the tenth Pakistan President from 2001 to 2008, and was the Army Chief of the Pakistan Army from 1998 to 2007.

In August 2008, Musharraf resigned from the post of President under impeachment pressure from the coalition government.
