Musharraf has the right to enter politics: Zardari

President Zardari says Musharraf should enter politics, but in a democratic way.


Express October 07, 2010

KARACHI: President Asif Ali Zardari on Thursday said that former president Pervez Musharraf has the right to enter politics but should only do so in a democratic way.

He added that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) followed politics of reconciliation and would continue to work with other parties.

Zardari's statements come after Musharraf's launch of the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) and the former president's scathing attacks on politicians, which included  calling the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) a mistake.

On the issue of Dr Aafia's sentence, Zardari said that the government would help her family appeal for her release.

He appreciated the efforts of the media and advised media persons to stay clear of sensationalism, reporting the truth to the masses. Zardari also said a Benazir Bhutto Journalist Card and an insurance package would also be introduced for the journalist community.
