Islamabad - The landmark decision of the coalition government to impeach President Pervez Musharraf seems to be a bold initiative yet the ground reality makes it equally risky. Background discussions and interviews with some leaders of mainstream political parties revealed that PPP mooted impeachment move if fizzled out would help legitimize all actions of President General Pervez Musharraf and his second five year term. They believed that the major coalition partners PPP and PML-N were short of the magic number of 295 to crown the motion with success in removing President Musharraf from the office. According to them the coalition partners including the PPP, PML-N, ANP, JUI (F) and FATA will have to work day and night to garner support of two thirds of parliament members of the National Assembly as well as the Senate. Some believed the coalition government might have to overcome serious odds when it strive to secure support of 295 members, which according to PPP Co-Chairman was already achieved. Still many look at this assertion of PPP Co-Chairman with skepticism, saying it could be Asif Zardari's bluff. They argued that Asif Zardari who had persuaded PML-N's leadership to buy his proposal of impeachment could actually be counter-productive. They believed that Asif Zardari would gain more strength by exploiting both President Pervez Musharraf as well as PML-N on one hand while on other he has created opportunity for President Musharraf to seek legitimacy. President Musharraf, who is all set to defend himself, had good support within different political parties, including JUI (F), PPP through Makhdoom Amin Fahim, PML (Q), MQM, PML (F) and above all, his own constituency of FATA to deny the magic number to the sponsors of the motion. "All he (Musharraf ) needs to do is to make sure that coalition partners seeking to remove him through the impeachment motion run short of one member to make the magic number of 295", a political observer remarked. Similarly, some PML-N leaders were fearful that Asif Zardari could still play a double game with PML-N like he had done on the issues of reappointment of eight deposed judges of the Sindh High Court. They believed it was not possible for the Law Minister Farooq Naek to move the summary to President without the consent of the party Co-Chairman and after lying to the Prime minister that Mian Nawaz Sharif had supported the proposal.
