In what could be setback to former Pakistan president Parvez Musharraf’s plan to return to politics, a Pakistani court has admitted a petition to declare his regime as unconstitutional and to remove his name from the list of the country’s presidents. The petitioner is no lesser person than former president Rafique Tarar, states Zee News.
Tarar’s petition, which was admitted by Lahore High Court Chief Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry yesterday, said that he (Tarar) should be considered the constitutional President for the period that Musharraf’s regime was in power. Musharraf came to power in a military coup in 1999 by overthrowing the PML-N government led by former premier Nawaz Sharif. Tarar was the President at that time and continued till Musharaff took over in 2001.
