Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has said he would go ahead with plans to be “re-elected” by the present assemblies next month and any talks on whether he should continue as Chief of Army could be held after the general elections.

Addressing legislators of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) and allies in Karachi, Musharraf said he would be re-elected by the existing assemblies holding the dual posts and talks on the uniform issue could be held after the general elections, The News quoted Presidential spokesman Maj-Gen (retd) Rashid Qureshi as saying.

Musharraf also virtually ruled out the return of former prime ministers Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto from exile, telling PML-Q legislators that there was no future for those leaders who were living abroad, Dawn newspaper reported.
