Islamabad, Nov 22 (ANI): Pakistans Supreme Court has dismissed the last petition against President Pervez Musharraf’s eligibility to contest the presidential elections. The verdict came after a brief hearing of Dr. Zahoor Mehdis petition by the full bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Doggar. On Monday, the court had dismissed five petitions against Musharrafs nomination, including the challenges from the presidential candidate Justice (retired) Wajihuddin and Makhdoom Amin Fahim. Earlier, Attorney General Malik Mohammad Qayyum had said that Musharraf would quit his army post and take oath as civilian president as early as Saturday if the presidential re-election was approved by the apex court.
