Pak Army still considers Musharraf as countrys legal PrezMay 31st, 2008 - 3:28 pm ICT by admin
Lahore , May 31 (ANI): Sources in Pakistan Army have claimed that the countrys armed forces still considered President Pervez Musharraf as their supreme commander, as well as the legal and constitutional president of the country.
The Pak Army sources statement comes in the wake of the recent rumours of Musharrafs resignation. They dubbed the rumours as completely baseless.
He said the US wanted the present government to respect the agreements reached between President Musharraf and the PPP before the general elections.
Rumours about Musharrafs resignation from the Presidency have been making rounds over the past few days. But, last evening at a dinner, Musharraf refuted all such reports, saying that a political party in Lahore (read PML-N) was behind giving air to all such false reports.
In a related development, US President George Bush called up Musharraf last evening to convey his support to him at this hour of crisis for Musharraf. (ANI)
