Political Parties Vow to Boycott Referendum

April 08, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

An alliance of political parties said it will boycott a referendum on extending the term of President Pervez Musharraf, a key U.S. ally in the global anti-terrorism campaign.

The 15-party Alliance for the Restoration of Democracy accused Musharraf of using unconstitutional means to remain president.

Musharraf seized power in October 1999 but has promised a return to civilian rule this year.
