Pervez Musharraf wants Pakistan polls be held under Army watch
Islamabad: Former Pakistan president and former military dictator, Pervez Musharraf, has said that the upcoming general elections should be held under the supervision of army.
Musharraf, who is the chief of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), said that there would be law and order issues, and the polls will not be fair and transparent if the elections are not held under the supervision of army, reports The Dawn.
Musharraf, who returned to Pakistan on March 24 after living for four years in self-imposed exile in London and Dubai, said he had been facing serious threats, but at the same time expressed satisfaction over the arrangements made by the caretaker government for his security.
The APML chief, who plans to contest for a National Assembly seat from the capital, said he would formally start political activities from his Islamabad residence where he had come for the first time since completion of the farmhouse after his departure to London in November 2008.
Musharraf, who has also submitted his nomination papers for a National Assembly seat from Karachi, expressed the hope that his party would be able to make seat-adjustment arrangement with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).
