Islamabad: In an attempt to revive the All Pakistan Muslim League party, former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has planned to return to national politics, stated a report. The APML chief who is currently in Dubai is scheduled to address his supporters in Islamabad on Sunday through a video link on the occasion of the party’s foundation day.
Despite having ruled Pakistan for almost a decade, the APML party claimed that their chief Musharraf will not return to the country anytime soon. Musharraf who had gone to Dubai in 2016 for medical treatment has not returned yet owing to security and health reasons.
Earlier in March this year, there were rumours that Pervez Musharraf passed away in Dubai after reports suggested a sharp deterioration in his health condition. It must be noted that the 76-year-old former Pakistan President had been recuperating in Dubai after suffering from a rare disease, as reported by Geo News. If reports are to be believed, Musharraf had paid a visit to the United States last week for a medical examination.
Notably, the former Pakistan President Musharraf is currently facing treason charges for imposing an extra-constitutional emergency in November 2007. As a result of Musharaff’s act, several superior court judges were confined and over 100 judges were sacked. Subsequently, the then ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government had registered a treason case against him in 2013. He is also declared a fugitive in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case and the Red Mosque cleric murder case.
