LONDON: Former president and head of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) General (retd) Pervez Musharraf has said that both Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) are corrupt but predicted that these parties are set to win the next general election in Pakistan.
Pervez Musharraf said that he was ready to join hands with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan to form an alliance against PML-N and PPP.
Former president also pinned hopes on Supreme Court of Pakistan over Panama Leaks and Dawn Leaks issues and said that it is right time to oust rulers to save country.
Addressing party workers in London, he expressed agreement with Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan on his views against the PML-N and PPP but criticised his strategy to counter the two parties. He said that with the current planning the PTI would not be able even to maintain its ruling position in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
“There are strong chances that PML-N can win the 2018 polls in KP as well,” he said.
“You [PTI] would not be able to retain your position in your own province. I appreciate your thought and I support your target. But your strategy and planning are not effective. With this there would be no change even in 2018 elections.”
He claimed that Pakistan’s sovereignty was under threat under the Nawaz Sharif government and the country badly needed a political force which could replace the two conventional ruling parties. He alleged that the PML-N and PPP over the past 10 years had compromised the country’s national security and economic growth.
The former President is staying in London these days. He left for Dubai more than a year ago hours after the interior ministry removed his name from the exit control list.
