Former Pakistan Prime Minister Mig Zafarullah Khan Jamali is apparently acting as a mediator to improve strained relations between Pervez Musharraf and the country’s reinstated top judge Iftikhar M Chaudhry.
Jamali has started acting as a mediator after the judge was reinstated by the Supreme Court on July 20 and met both him and Musharraf four times in the past few days, the Online news agency reported.
Jamali is also trying to arrange a meeting between Musharraf and Chaudhry at a “neutral place in a cordial environment”, it said. Musharraf has already expressed his eagerness during an address through the state-run PTV few days ago to restore his “friendly relations” with Chaudhry after the decision of the Supreme Court.
Jamali continued to maintain good relations with Musharraf even after quitting the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Q.
He has raised a banner of revolt against PML-Q President Shujaat Hussain and yesterday he even welcomed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s attempts to return home so that the original PML could be revived.
Musharraf, while agreeing to Jamali’s mediation efforts said that he from the day one has been saying that whatever decision is taken by the Supreme Court would be acceptable to him and he wants friendly relations with the Chief Justice, according to the report.
