Islamabad, Sep 17: Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf plans to stand down from the powerful position of army chief after securing his re-election for a second term in October, a senior official of the ruling party said today.

''We expect that after his re-election process next month, God willing, General Musharraf would take his oath of office as a civilian president before Nov. 15,'' Mushahid Hussain Sayed, Secretary-General of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League (PML) said.

Musharraf's current term as president expires on Nov 15.

''Yes, I have no doubt that the President will keep his commitment and ... he is clear on this issue,'' Sayed, who recently met Musharraf, told Reuters.
