General Pervez Musharraf

Pakistan: Domestic and External Dynamics

General Pervez Musharraf was President of Pakistan for nearly nine years, after leading a bloodless military coup in 1999. As President, he was a pro-US ally in the fight against terrorism, and won praise from the IMF and World Bank for his overhaul of the Pakistani economy. He also worked to denounce extremism, to improve relations with India, and introduced laws to increase the number of women in parliament. However, his critics point to his role in the country's overdue return to democracy, and he is wanted in Pakistan following the issue of an arrest warrant by a court addressing the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.
