Should Musharraf Resign?

Musharaf’s Address Today & Resignation(?)

News are Musharaf will address nation at 1 PM today and MAY announce his resignation. End of 9 years reign. Before the impeachment process begins.

Do you think he should step down? But then does his presence makes any difference? or his absence for that matter?

Who would YOU prefer as your next president? Zardari, nawaz Sharif? or some other newly transformed hunk (sigh).

Please tell why you say Musharraf should resign and why not.

ps: For some weird reason the poll i created is not getting embed in.

    WASHINGTON: Embattled Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has been a "good ally," US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday, but she refused to say whether he would receive US asylum if he stepped down."This is an issue that is not on the table," Rice said in an interview with "Fox News Sunday." A spokesman for Musharraf, who has ruled since a 1999 coup, has insisted he would not resign.

    "President Musharraf has been a good ally," said Rice.

    "Everyone knows that we disagreed with his decision in terms of the state of emergency that he declared, but he was – he kept to his word.

    He took off the uniform. There’s now a democratic government in Pakistan."

    The long-running crisis surrounding Musharraf’s future has heightened concern in the US and other allies about the stability of the nuclear-armed Muslim state.

    Rice, in her television interview, declined to criticize the Pakistani leader.

    In general, Western countries appreciate Musharraf’s efforts to contain Islamic militants who have provided shelter for the Taliban and al Qaeda near Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan.

    Defence Secretary Robert Gates, interviewed on ABC’s "This Week," said that while Al Qaeda remained in a remote corner of Pakistan it was anything but comfortable there.

    "When Al Qaeda was in Afghanistan, they had the partnership of a government. They had ready access to international communications, ready access to travel," he said.

    Isolated on the Pakistan/Afghani border "it’s much more difficult for them to move around, much more difficult for them to communicate," Gates said.

    Meanwhile, Pakistan’s ruling coalition tightened the screw on Musharraf, saying that it had readied impeachment charges against him and was giving him two days to stand down.

    Defence Minister Ahmed Mukhtar said that the charge sheet will be presented in parliament by tomorrow.

    Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said a day earlier that Musharraf had to decide on quitting.

    The coalition finalised the charges yesterday after intense deliberations and would present them today to the alliance’s leaders, Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif, Information Minister Sherry Rehman said.

    She said it would be submitted to parliament as part of an impeachment resolution "this week" but did not elaborate.

    Premier Yousuf Raza Gilani said the "time has come when the nation will decide its own destiny as the people voted for a change in the country in the February elections."

    The impossible has already happened. And yes i was in favor of Musharraf’s resignation. But i also believe that even if he is not impeached, he should also NOT be given a very safe path out of here. He is accountable for so much and he should answer all questions.
