Coup-makers may retain parliament
Pakistan's army chief, General Pervez Musharraf, who overthrew the civilian government on Tuesday, has met President Rafiq Tarar amid indications that the coup-makers wish to retain the country's parliamentary system, press reports said today.
General Musharraf went to the president late yesterday after day-long deliberations among military commanders at the general headquarters in Rawalpindi on the options open to them for a replacement of ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharief.
They dismissed the government after the premier sacked their chief, General Musharraf.
From the very start, the ''coup-makers were reluctant to impose martial law''. The other options reportedly discussed by them were allowing the existing parliament to elect a new leader in place of Nawaz Sharief or to form a broad-based national government.
