Musharraf says goodbye to army
by UPI

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, due to step down as army chief shortly, began saying goodbye Tuesday at various military headquarters.

The round of farewells is in line with tradition and Musharraf was due to step down officially Wednesday before taking the oath for a new term as president Thursday, the Press Trust of India reported.

Musharraf was appointed army chief by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who promoted him over senior officers in 1998. However, the two men fell out over military matters and Musharraf staged a bloodless coup the following year as Sharif fled into exile.

Musharraf, 64, was due to hand over his military duties Wednesday to Gen. Ashfaq Pervez Kiyani, retaining only the office of president.

PTI said Musharraf began his farewell visits with a call to the Joint Staff Headquarters at Chaklala in Rawalpindi.
