Musharraf: "I'm Staying"

We shall see.
Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf says he has no plans to resign, despite a sweeping victory by the opposition in the country's parliamentary elections.

Mr Musharraf told the Wall Street Journal there was a need to move forward to help bring about a stable democratic government in Pakistan.

US President George Bush called the vote a victory for Pakistani democracy.

Meanwhile the party of late former PM Benazir Bhutto says it is ready to form a coalition with Nawaz Sharif's PML-N.

A union of Ms Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party (PPP) with the PML-N would have more than half parliament's seats.more
