Islamabad, Nov 7: Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf will likely end emergency rule that has drawn widespread international condemnation in two to three weeks, the president of the country's ruling party told to the media.

''I'm sure it will end in two to three weeks as President Pervez Musharraf is aware of the consequences of long emergency rule,'' Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, President of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League, told the media.

Hussain formerly served as prime minister and is a member of Musharraf's inner circle. Officials have said national elections will still take place in January, but Musharraf has not yet said when the vote will be held or when the emergency will end.
