Musharraf rejects the possibility of reinstating deposed CJ Chaudhry
The Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf ruled out any chances of reinstating deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry and several other judges of the Supreme Court saying, as Pakistan already have a Chief Justice there was no room for Mr Chaudhry. “The Chief Justice of Pakistan is Abdul Hameed Dogar now, and he remains there, and there are judges in the Supreme Court, they are the judges of the Supreme Court and the high courts. Nobody is being allowed to go back," Musharraf said.
Musharraf defended his imposition of emergency in Pakistan by saying, “What was happening was that the complete executive machinery was in near paralysis. The law-enforcement agencies were totally demoralised – and they were not acting. The supremacy of the parliament was totally violated in that they gave me 57 per cent vote and yet they were not allowed to go through with their decision.”
