Sources told Daily Times on Friday that Musharraf had been consulting his friends to assess his prospects in politics, as the constitutional bar on his entry into politics lapses on November 28 (today).
The sources said Musharraf had been pursuing a wait-and-see policy and is keen to bring together his former supporters. Musharraf has asked his key supporters to contact politicians for a unified Muslim League, minus the PML-N.
Many leaders of Chaudhry Shujaat-led PML-Q, and the party’s dissident group, including Hamid Nasir Chatta, Saleem Saifullah Khan and Humayun Akhtar, have met Musharraf in the past few months, while many current and former parliamentarians are in regular contact with him, the sources added.
