Talking further about the nature of alliance, he said that all the member parties will contest together with one name. He called the new alliance as Pakistan Awami Alliance, announcing that its office will be established in the F6 area. He refuted the reports saying he will replace Farooq Sattar as MQM-P chief.
Musharraf claimed that several leaders in the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) are ready to part ways with the party and a new political force will emerge soon.
He also invited Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) in the alliance. "Chaudhry Pervez Elahi supported me and had performed well in Punjab," he added.
The ex-President announced that he will soon return to Pakistan and the cases against him. "Things have changed now and ex-PM Nawaz Sharif is not behind the courts. Sharif's political future is zero," he claimed. - NNI
