Pakistan's beleaguered president Pervez Musharraf is to step down after nine years in office, government officials and a member of his circle have told the Financial Times.
A senior officer in Mr Musharraf's camp last night conceded that he had decided to step down to avoid a parliamentary impeachment that was likely to begin on Monday.
A senior Pakistani government official said that a deal had been brokered between Mr Musharraf and members of the newly elected coalition government, with the army playing a key role in the agreement.
