KARACHI: While terming her siding with former military ruler Pervez Musharraf a political blunder, Marvi Memon said she would contest upcoming general elections.

Memon, who had recently joined Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz, said she joined the party because it believes in the rule of law.

She said that all political leadership including old and new has been nurtured under dictatorship.

Addressing the lawyers in Karachi Bar Association, Memon said she would not join the present parliament.

Had it been for power, I would not have resigned from the parliament, she added.

She appreciated the efforts of the lawyers and said that her political endeavors were always aimed to establish justice and rule of law in Pakistan.
