Aides to former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf have advised him to delay his return to the country due to political instability, but he has yet to make a final decision, sources close to Musharraf told Reuters on Thursday.
Musharraf addressed a rally via video in Karachi, last week and announced his plan to return to take part in the 2013 polls.
The former president, who seized power in a 1999 coup, has been living in Dubai for almost three years and is currently visiting London. Musharraf left the country after the new coalition government in 2008 threatened him with impeachment.
Meanwhile, interior minister Rehman Malik told the Senate on Wednesday that Musharraf would be arrested under the law of the land whenever he arrives in Pakistan. “The moment he lands, he will go to jail,” he said.
