Days before former President Pervez Musharraf’s planned return to Pakistan from self-exile, a key leader of his party resigned on Tuesday.

Fawwad Chaudhry, who was a spokesman for Musharraf and general secretary of the All Pakistan Muslim League's (APML) Punjab chapter, said he was resigning from his party as he was not being consulted on important issues such as Musharraf's planned return or the organisation of rallies.

Chaudhry said he had sent his resignation to the party leadership via e-mail.

Earlier, veteran politician and former minister Sher Afgan Khan Niazi resigned from the APML following differences with the party's leadership.
