[JURIST] The upper house of Pakistan's parliament passed a bill today which allows Pervez Musharraf to remain as both the country's president and army chief until 2007. The lower house had already passed a similar version of the bill. Musharraf had pledged to step down as army chief by the end of the year as part of a deal with opposition leaders. Supporters of the bill feel Musharraf must keep both offices to safeguard the country's security. Leaders of the opposition, who call the bill a breach of a previous agreement, have threatened to take away their support of the constitutional amendment that legitimizes Musharraf's military rule.
