November 26, 2007


LAHORE, Nov 25: President Gen Pervez Musharraf will hang up his uniform and take oath as president on Nov 29, a television channel quoted Attorney-General Malik Qayyum as saying on Sunday.

“He will take the oath for the next five-year term as civilian president on Thursday,” the AG was quoted as saying.

Talking to PTV and Dawn News channel on Friday, Malik Qayyum said that Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar would administer the oath and before that Gen Musharraf would relinquish the post of the army chief.

He also said that emergency was likely to be lifted before general elections scheduled for January 8, but a decision in this regard would be taken by the president himself.
