Musharraf won't set a date to end Martial Law

Pakistan's Presdent, Gen. Pervez Musharraf has refused to give a date that will end the military's control over the admisitration of justice, Sunday according to the NY Times.

However, he did appear to give in to American pressure by restoring parliamentary elections in early January.

Elections may be difficult seeing Pakistani citizens still don't have their basic civil liberties.

Wstern diplomats dismissed the election date and question General Musharraf. How can the country have fair elections when his security forces have arrested 2,500 civilians, suspended the constitution, blocked independent news channels and banned public gatherings?
