ISLAMABAD: After rejection of papers from all provinces and a lifetime ban, former military ruler Pervez Musharraf’s party, the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), has announced a boycott of the May 11 elections.

The spokesman of the party made the announcement at a press conference in Islamabad on Friday.

“The rejection of General (retd) Pervez Musharraf’s candidacy papers has resulted in this decision by the party,” said APML spokesman Muhammad Amjad.

“General Musharraf will face all cases against him and will not run away from any charges,” he said.
