Musharraf Says He Will Resign as Head of Army
"I am not a dictator, I want democracy," Musharraf is quoted as saying.

Warning that Pakistan would sink into chaos if he resigned, the country president Pervez Musharraf said on Nov. 14,2007 that he expects to step down as army chief by the end of November and begin a new presidential term as a civilian.

"All those who are blunt enough to tell me to my face what the reality is, all of them think, yes, it will lead the country to chaos if I do not handle the political environment now with me remaining as the president," he said during an interview with AP at his army office.

Musharraf planned to quit as chief of the army by November 15, but said he was forced to delay the restoration of civilian rule until a court ruling on his recent re-election.

He said that he expected the ruling to happen before the end of November.

"When there is no turmoil in Pakistan, I will step down," the Sky News website quoted Musharraf as saying. "I am not a dictator, I want democracy."
