Musharraf plans to remain president
by UPI

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pervez Musharraf, threatened with impeachment by the opposition, plans to complete his term as president of Pakistan, a close associate said.

Pervez Elahi and a delegation of other members of Musharraf's political party, the Muslim League Q, met with the president, the Press Trust of India reported.

"He has been elected president for five years," Elahi said. "He will remain president for five years."

Michael McConnell, the U.S. director of national intelligence, suggested that Musharraf might be vulnerable to impeachment. He said the Muslim League N, the party headed by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, and the Pakistan Peoples Party do not have the votes for impeachment but might if independents join them.

The Feb. 18 election was a disaster for Musharraf and for religious Muslim parties.

Musharraf also reportedly told his political allies he will fight any efforts to strip the presidency of its powers.
