Crisis in Pakistan: Articles of Impeachment against Musharraf

President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan has decided to fight the articles of impeachment introduced against him in the parliament by the ruling coalition of the Pakistan People’s Party and the Muslim League. Thus the stage is set for a major political crisis in the second most populous Muslim country in the world, the sixth largest country in the world, and the only Muslim nuclear power. Musharraf came to power in a military coup in 1999, and there are fears that the military could intervene again.
