The man who challenged Musharraf

September 27, 2007
As Pakistan hurtles towards what is arguably its most intriguing election, lawyers who are opposed to President Pervez Musharraf have put up a former Pakistan Supreme Court judge as a candidate against him.

Judge Wajihuddin Ahmad filed his nomination on Thursday, the same day Musharraf's supporters also filed his nomination papers for the presidential election. An expert on the Constitution, Ahmad is known best for his decision to quit from the Supreme Court of Pakistan instead of taking the oath of office according to General Musharraf's Provisional Constitutional Order.
