Pervez not to visit Pak for APML launch

Islamabad, Aug 16: Pervez Musharraf, former Pakistan president, who is currently living in London, will not visit Pakistan for the launch of his All Pakistan Muslim League party (APML) in Sep.

Sources close to Musharraf said because of some formidable challenges and serious risks, he will not visit Pakistan.

Some of Musharraf's aides had recently announced that he would return to Pakistan later this year to lead the APML.

The sources told the Daily Times, that a core team of legal and political experts is finalising the manifesto of the newly formed APML and the party will be launched after Eid-ul-Fitr in London, Pakistan, Dubai and the US.

Earlier, Musharraf announced a donation of 1 crore for victims of floods in Pakistan and said that the amount will be handed over to APML officials, so that it could be used to help the victims.

The APML office in Dubai will be a special venue for Musharraf to meet his fans, sources said.

A decision was made to set up a party office in the US because Musharraf had some close friends and fans in Dallas and these people want to play an active role in Pakistani politics through their financial, moral and political support to the APML, the sources said.

The APML was founded in Karachi in 2010 and the party was registered in all provinces of by Pakistan by Saif Ali Khan and Maj Gen (retired) Rashid Quraishi, two of Musharraf's closest aides.
