DUBAI: Former Pakistani President and military dictator, Gen (Retd) Pervez Musharraf announced on Friday that he would return to the country within a week after the interim government takes control.
The ex-strongman made the announcement barely weeks before March 16, when assemblies are expected to be dissolved and a caretaker government appointed to oversee general elections in Pakistan.
I have decided that I will return to Pakistan within one week after the formation of the caretaker government, likely to be set up by March 16, he told a news conference in Dubai.
When I look at these conditions that the country is in, I know that my return to Pakistan is crucial. And I will return to my beloved country, he said. Now or never, now or never!
The former president faces two court warrants for his arrest in connection with the 2006 death of Akbar Bugti and the 2007 assassination of ex-prime minister Benazir Bhutto. Agencies
