Elections under Musharraf will hardly be fair: BenazirNovember 15th, 2007 - 2:55 pm ICT by admin
Lahore, Nov 15 (ANI): Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has said that elections promised by President General Pervez Musharraf before January 9 could “hardly be fair” under his rule.
“Musharraf will continue to be the head of the ruling party in an open field, while all other actors are behind bars,” she said, referring to herself and other political leaders who were rounded up.
Bhutto vowed to make another attempt to hold a long march from Lahore to Islamabad to protest the state of emergency imposed by Musharraf, a plan that was responsible for the authorities detaining her in the first place, she said.
“Whenever I come out of here I will lead the march. The freedom march will go ahead,” Bhutto said.
“These tactics make me more determined to reach out to the people,” she added.
“It is a march to end military rule, it is a march to return government to the people of Pakistan,” she said. (ANI)
