Musharraf's return in political limelight

Rehman Malik says Musharraf free to return, Pagara dismisses former president's party as a 'dream'.


Express September 16, 2010

Interior Minister Rehman Malik said that former President Pervez Musharraf should return to Pakistan and face the cases against him just like the leadership of the PPP is facing cases in the courts.

Malik was speaking to the media outside the Election Commission in Islamabad.

He denied media reports about writing a letter to Musharraf and allegedly cautioning the former president about security threats upon his return to Pakistan.

“Musharraf is a Pakistani citizen and he can come back whenever he wants,” he said.

'Musharraf's party is just a dream'

Pir Pagara, chief of the Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) said that the next prime minister of Pakistan is going to be from his party.

He went on to say former president Musharraf’s party is just a dream and that it has no credibility since he is an army man first and a politician second.

He said that the MQM cannot really reach a national level because it tenders only to its own ethnic and political base in Karachi. He spoke out against most political parties asserting that the next prime minister would be from his party.
