Sharif rules out serving under Musharraf’s presidency


Islamabad, Nov 25 (PTI) All set for a political comeback, former premier Nawaz Sharif today demanded a complete roll back of emergency as well as all subsequent actions by Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf and ruled out serving under his presidency.

“He (Musharraf) has to first roll back all that he has done since November three, that is very essential, everything he has done since November three has to be reversed and rolled back completely before we could discuss about the possibility of any talks," Sharif told CNN over phone prior to his departure to Lahore from Saudi Arabia in a second bid to end his seven-year exile.

Sharif was asked whether he will “accommodate" the General, who ousted him in a bloodless coup in 1999, or have talks with him.

“I can’t alone decide, of course the All Parties Democratic Movement can decide on it (holding talks with Musharraf," the 57-year-old leader of Pakistan Muslim League (N) added.

Asked if he was ready to serve as Pakistan’s next Prime Minister under Musharraf, Sharif retorted “No, No, No, No question."

“I am going back home on a short notice, only yesterday people of Pakistan came to know that I am coming today. I finalised travelling plans yesterday, let me go back to my country, let us sit down and review the whole situation." the PTI ATK AKJ RT
