Former military ruler Pervez Musharraf is set to launch a campaign for the ‘national government’ in the coming weeks, in alliance with Pakistan Awami Tehreek leader (PAT) Tahirul Qadri after forming the Muttahida Muslim League.
“The formation of the Muttahida Muslim League (MML) is expected soon after the Eid, according to sources.
The campaign will be for the national government and reforms”, Dr Amjed Chaudhry, the Secretary General of Musharraf’s All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) said.
Amjed stated that there had been a telephonic conversation between Musharraf and Qadri, and it was nothing new as they had been in contact in the past as well.
Chaudhry said Musharraf, who ruled the country from 1999 to 2008, thinks the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has lost its mandate to rule so a national government, acceptable to all, should be formed to introduce reforms before holding general elections.
