Islamabad/Dubai, Aug. 26 (ANI): Sources close to Pakistan's former military ruler Pervez Musharraf have revealed that he may consider seizing power again, only a year after a marathon 9-year innings at the helm.

"Musharraf is planning a return to power. He is discussing it with his close aides. He is not done yet," a source close to the former president said.

The web site quoted the source, as saying that, Musharraf, who quit in August 2008 under immense national and international pressure, has called a meeting of his aides in Dubai to discuss his return.

"The date for the meeting has not yet been finalised but Mr. Musharraf will be flying to Dubai from London this week and then will summon his close aides there," the source said.

The source said Musharraf held a meeting with his close political aides and some Nazims (mayors) in London recently and discussed with them his future political ambitions as his two years ban on political activities will expire in November this year.

The source said that the former ruling party Pakistan Muslim League (Quaid-e-Azam)'s secretary-general Humayun Akhtar Khan also held a meeting with Musharraf in London.

Meanwhile, former Pakistan Prime Minister Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has said that he will not make efforts to unify Muslim League factions as envisaged by Musharraf. (ANI)
