Opposition routing Musharraf's party
by UPI

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistani voters appear to have rebuked President Pervez Musharraf, turning to parliamentary candidates from two opposition parties, it was reported Tuesday.

Preliminary results showed the PML (N) party of former premier Nawa Sharif and the PPP, the party of slain former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, each had won 56 seats in Pakistan's Parliament, the Press Trust of India reported. The ruling PML-Q party, allied with Musharraf, had taken just 21 seats.

Elections were held Monday for 269 of the Parliament's 272 seats.

PPP Vice Chairman Maqdoon Fahim defeated his PML (N) opponent, while many PML-Q leaders lost their races, including former premier and party chief Chaudhy Shujaat Hussain, former foreign minister Khurshid M. Kasuri and former railway minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.
