Musharraf likely to give up uniform by weekend: Pak Attorney GeneralNovember 21st, 2007 - 12:37 pm ICT by admin
Islamabad, Nov 21 (ANI): President Pervez Musharraf is set to step down as Chief of the Army Staff and swear a new oath of office as a civilian President by the weekend, Attorney General Malik Mohammad Qayyum has said.
A foreign news agency quoted Qayyum as saying that if the Supreme Court throws out a final legal challenge on Thursday to Musharraf’s re-election, he would give up his uniform within days.
“If the Supreme Court lifts the stay order against his re-election, then Musharraf is likely to take the oath as a civilian President by Saturday or Sunday,” Qayyum said.
On Monday the apex court dismissed the main five of six petitions challenging Musharraf’s October 6 victory, leaving just one - regarded as minor - to be heard on Thursday, the Dawn reported. (ANI)
