Musharraf launches political party

pervez musharrafLONDON: Pakistan’s ex-military ruler Pervez Musharraf has launched a new political party that may sharpen political tensions at home amid growing criticism of the civilian government.

Musharraf told hundreds of cheering supporters that the best way to deal with Pakistan’s political and economic troubles is to bring his party to power.

He says there is a need to ”bring all patriotic people under one flag, that flag should be the All Pakistan Muslim League.”

Since he stepped down in 2008 under an impeachment threat and protests, Musharraf has been living in Britain, home to some 1 million people of Pakistani descent.

Earlier Friday, he said the only way to tackle Pakistan’s problems, which have been exacerbated by recent floods, is to further bolster the army’s role. -AP
