Pakistan's Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) has decided to move the apex court against President Pervez Musharraf's bid to get himself re-elected from the present assemblies.

Flanked by SCBA office bearers, its secretary Zulfiqar Ali Bokhari said on Monday in Lahore that present assemblies having a five-year tenure were not entitled to elect a president for two terms or 10 years.

"What will the next assemblies do if the present assemblies cast vote twice?" he was quoted as saying by the daily Dawn.

Bokhari said the SCBA would organise a countrywide convention to restrain the government from holding presidential elections through the present assemblies.
