Lawyers clashed with Pakistani police again today as the country's president, General Pervez Musharraf, considered his response to intense international pressure to restore civilian rule and hold elections as planned. Britain, the US and the UN have led international demands for Gen Musharraf to keep his earlier promises to restore the constitution, resign as the army chief and hold elections by January.

General Musharraf must restore the democratic and constitutional process and guarantee that the commitment to parliamentary elections in January will be honoured. He must also honour his repeated pledge to retire from the military and move Pakistan towards full civilian administration.
