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.
