Pakistan’s former military ruler Pervez Musharraf will return home on March 24 to lead his party in the general election, ending his four years of self-imposed exile in Dubai and London.

Musharraf plans to fly on a commercial airline into Karachi on March 24, then attend a rally attended by 50,000 people including more than 200 Pakistani expatriates from the US, Canada, the UK and the UAE, the statement was quoted by the CNN as saying.

He plans to lead his party, the All Pakistan Muslim League into Pakistan’s general elections, which are slated for May.
