Former military ruler Pervez Musharraf has applied to register a new political party with the election commission of Pakistan in Islamabad, an aide and election official confirmed on Wednesday. Musharraf’s legal adviser and unofficial spokesman Mohammad Ali Saif said the country’s authorities would hear the application on May 10. The former president has applied for the party under the name of “All Pakistan Muslim League.” Saif added that the former president would return from Britain to Pakistan and will fight a criminal case lodged against him. Musharraf, who has been away from politics for two years, will face trial if he returns to the country for his alleged role in the 2007 assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Bhutto. The Pakistani police brought charges ageist the former military ruler and two of his associates after a UN report held his government accountable for the assassination of Bhutto along with 16 other controversial activities during his final days in office.
