London, Mar 22(ANI): Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, who resigned under the threat of impeachment in 2008, is reportedly considering a political comeback and plans to meet counterparts and supporters in Abu Dhabi and Dubai to discuss his political future.

"Musharraf plans to visit Bahrain at the request of the royal family at the end of March. He will then visit Abu Dhabi and Dubai," The National quoted Rashid Qureshi, Musharraf's spokesperson, as saying.

Musharraf, who is currently living in exile in London, indicated his desire to return to politics during a lecture tour in the United States last week.

"I am keeping my options open," Musharraf said during his speech in Sarasota, Florida.

He also stressed that Pakistan had gone "downhill" since his departure.

According to earlier reports, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has accepted Musharraf's application to register a new political party named-All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), thus clearing the road for Musharraf to return to the country for another political stint.

Sources privy to the development said Musharraf was trying hard to register the party through some of his loyalists in the country for quite some time, and has now finally succeeded.

Sources said the application filed by the ECP named some of the office-bearers of APML such as Barrister Saif as Chairman, Sher Alam Khattak as President, Chuadhry Abdul Ghafoor as Senior Vice President, and Rai Mulazam Hussain as Secretary General. (ANI)
