KARACHI: Former military ruler and All Pakistan Muslim League chief Pervez Musharraf said on Wednesday that he expects a change in the PML-N-led government. He said he foresees a technocratic national government in the country in the near future.

Addressing a APML ceremony in the city through video link, Musharraf said change in the incumbent ruling setup is inevitable and there was a possibility of a technocratic or national government replacing the incumbent government of Nawaz Sharif.

He said that the next elections would be conducted by a national or technocratic government after it successfully introduces reforms in the system. He urged his party workers to make the best use of the time during the process for reforms and next elections so that the APML would emerge as the third force in the country's political arena.

The former military dictator talked about the reasons and motives behind his homecoming after self-imposed exile since 2008. "I had concerns and worries about the situation in my motherland, the law and order situation had worsened and deteriorating economic situation and political vacuum were the reason which compelled me to fly home back to stand by the nation in the time of test and turmoil and to play my active role from the front," Musharraf said.

He admitted that the situation in the country was worse than he had imagined during his stay abroad. On the high treason case against him currently underway in the court, Musharraf admitted he was very upset over it. "I had fought wars for the motherland and had sacrificed much for the sake of my country, but the party currently in power initiated a treason case against me," Musharraf exclaimed.
