Musharraf 'running out of time'

Pakistan's foreign minister has said President Pervez Musharraf must stand down in the next two days or face impeachment proceedings.

"Musharraf is running out of time", said Shah Mahmood Qureshi, of the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) - a major partner in the governing coalition.

Draft charges against the president include violation of the constitution and gross misconduct, officials said.

Mr Musharraf's office has said he will not resign and will defend himself.

The impeachment campaign was launched last week by leaders of the PPP and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), led by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

A PML-N official said: "There is a long list of charges against him... we will file them, by the latest, by Tuesday."

If Mr Musharraf chooses not to quit, he would be the first president in Pakistan's history to be impeached.
