Pervez Musharraf - Why not?
Gen Parvez Musharraf took over in 1999, his initial 3 years agenda was wonderful. Supreme Court granted him all powers even to amend constitution which only parliment with 2/3 majority could do. He was absolute powerful like a king for 9 years. He could have done wonders like Gen George Washington by laying the foundations & Democratic system for strong nation. But he also became slave to his ambitions to prolong his rule, exploited by selfish politicians. His legacy was NRO, & Zardari, the plunderer. Rest is history.
He is in politics, even if by some chance (though remote), he becomes PM he would not enjoy those powers which he had as President & Army Chief. He may repeat same errors again, as Sharif's do it again & again. It's time to look for new leadership, it's time for CHANGE ...
The National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) was a controversial ordinance issued by the former President of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf, on 5 October 2007. It granted amnesty to politicians, political workers and bureaucrats who were accused of corruption, embezzlement, money laundering, murder, and terrorism between 1 January 1986, and 12 October 1999, the time between two states of martial law in Pakistan. It was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of Pakistan on 16 December 2009, throwing the country into a political crisis.
