Former Pakistani premier Benazir Bhutto on Wednesday welcomed President Pervez Musharraf's resignation from the army but said she was in no hurry to accept him as a civilian leader.

"We welcome President Pervez Musharraf taking off his uniform and quitting the army as one of our key demands," Bhutto told reporters in her stronghold of Karachi.

"We are not in a hurry to accept Pervez Musharraf as a civilian president. We'll take any decision in this regard after detailed deliberations keeping in view all the aspects involved."
