I welcome Pervez Musharraf’s resignation as President of Pakistan and hope that the Government of Pakistan will get on with tackling terrorism, poverty, deprivation and unemployment.

Life under Musharraf has been hard for ordinary Pakistanis and will probably be no different under the new Government, this is the most important policy area for any Government, yet the Pakistani Government is more interested in playing musical chairs.

Pakistan must free itself from dependency from Western powers; decisions should be made by Pakistan and not by outside forces, change is on its way but it must be lasting change”
