CHITRAL: Former president and President of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), Gen (Retd) Pervez Musharraf will file nomination papers for NA-32 Chitral constituency on Thursday.      

President of APML Chitral, Shahzada Khalid Pervez told APP on Wednesday that nomination papers for the former President for NA-32 Chitral constituency would be filed with the Returning Officer on March 28.

Musharraf is all set to file nomination papers in three other constituencies including Karachi (NA-250), Islamabad (NA-48) and Kasur (NA-139).

He said the party has decided to field the former President from this mountainous constituency where the party had a strong vote bank.

He was optimistic that the APML Chief would easily sail through the constituency in the upcoming general elections on May 11.

He said Musharraf has chosen this constituency in Khyber Pakthunkhwa as the people of Chitral wanted to "pay glowing tribute" to the former dictator for inaugurating construction work on the sole gigantic Lowari Tunnel Project in 2006.

Musharraf can't contest election because of his crime 1). toppling an elected government 2). declaring emergency in Pakistan on which SC has given verdict as violation of constitution. So how can a law breaker con contest to be a law maker.. He is not eligible to contest election . Matter ends.
