Musharraf to leave country, says Ijazul Haq

LAHORE
PML-Zia President and newly elected MNA Ijaz-ul-Haq has claimed that former President Pervez Musharraf will be out of the country through the intervention of some guarantors before the oath taking ceremony of the new prime minister.
He said he was sure of Musharraf’s leaving Pakistan so anybody who could stop him should make effort.
He was addressing a press conference at Lahore Press Club on Wednesday. Ijaz-ul-Haq who was contesting on two seats from Bahawalnager alleged that he was defeated on NA-191 seat against PML-N candidate Mian Abdul Rasheed due to massive rigging.
He said that he was submitting a petition with the Election Commission of Pakistan on Wednesday with proofs of rigging. He was of view that he had also held meetings with JI and PTI leadership in this regard.
Moreover, he alleged that his rival candidate Mian Abdul Rasheed in NA-191 was not fulfilling the requirements of Article 62 and 63 of the constitution due to his involvement in different scams.
Responding to a query, Ijaz-ul-Haq said the PML-N had won the election but there were huge challenges ahead and it alone could not handle such grim situation.
He advised the PML-N leadership to take along all the political parties. He said that his party would support PML-N both in the federal government and Punjab government but they would maintain their separate identity through demanding separate seats for themselves in the assemblies.
Nevertheless, he made it clear that he would not demand any ministry from the PML-N for his support to it.
