Musharraf hopes he won`t be deprived of right to contest upcoming polls
Islamabad: Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf has said he has full confidence in the judiciary and is hoping that his right to contest polls will not be snatched from him.
During an exclusive chat with the BBC, Musharraf said that he hoped justice would be administered to him by the courts, reports the Daily Times.
The decision of holding the constitution in abeyance, proclamation of emergency and removal of judges was a correct decision, compatible with the environment of the time, the former military dictator remarked.
He said there was such atmosphere prevailing over then wherein he was striving to put in place a democratic process and stable democratic order in Pakistan. Certain actions were taken at that time.
This is all history and these will be presented before the court, he added. The former army chief returned to Pakistan on March 24 after four years of self-imposed exile in London and Dubai, with an aim to contest the May 11 polls.
