LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Zardari and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday separately called for President Pervez Musharraf to quit after his allies were defeated in the general elections.

“Musharraf had said he would quit when the people tell him to. The people have now given their verdict,” Nawaz told a news conference in Lahore.

“We will now take this demand (of the president’s resignation) with us to the parliament and see which political forces support us,” Zardari told BBC after a meeting of his party’s Central Executive Committee.

So, where is the vote rigging etc.
This is the most clean election in the history of Pakistan and the credit goes to Mushraff,

Hopefully Bhutto-Zardari Sharif will condcut as posmised a UN sanctioned investigation on Benezer death along with the allegation of Bhutto-Zardari Sharif corrution, nepotisom etc, ect. That's the olny way these fellows can clear their bad rap. Don't you want to have a clean slate Mr. Bhutto-Zardai and Mr. Sharif?

The other choice is one will be the "TOP DOG" of Punjab and the other will be the "TOP Dog" of Sindh like his faher in law.

Let's wait and see.

Its getting dirty now. Musharraf wont leave in grace. Guards, escort this ignorant man out. Musharraf will be made into an example of dis-grace. Wait and watch how this "Emperor without Clothes" crumbles. He will be humiliated worst than Noreiga, Marcos and the Shah of Iran (after the fall i.e.). He will become synonymous with "shame" and "guilt". This criminal of humanity.. this criminal of freedom. This un-educated ignorant criminal.
