Islamabad: Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf is said to have obtained the nomination papers to contest in the July 25 general elections through his representatives from Karachis South district, a media report said on Sunday.

Musharraf, who is facing a high treason case, has been allowed by the Supreme Court to file nomination papers on the condition that he would personally appear before the court in Lahore on June 13, the Dawn news report said.

Recently, a three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar heard Musharraf’s appeal against a Peshawar High Court verdict disqualifying him for life for promulgating a state of emergency in November 2007.

The apex court allowed the returning officers to receive the former leader’s nomination papers for the upcoming elections, though acceptance of the nomination papers would be subject to the outcome of the case.

Informed sources told Dawn that the documents were being sent to Dubai for his signature.

He has not set any date for his return, but an All Pakistan Muslim League leader announced earlier this week that he would return after Eid.
