무샤라프 대통령은 새로 구성된 국회를 2주 안에 소집할 것으로 알려졌습니다.
지난 달 치러진 총선에서 온건 성향의 야당들이 무샤라프 대통령을 지지하는 집권당을 누르고 과반의석을 차지했습니다.
아슈파크 카야니 군 참모총장도 6일 파키스탄 군은 헌법에 명시된 대로 국민이 뽑은 지도자들을 지지할 것이라고 밝혔습니다.
Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has vowed today (Friday) to fully support the incoming coalition government, as long as peace is maintained.
Mr. Musharraf is expected to convene the new parliament within the next two weeks.
Moderate and secular Pakistani opposition parties won a majority of seats in last month's parliamentary elections, defeating the pro-Musharraf ruling party and Islamists. Some of the election winners have since called on Mr. Musharraf to resign.
On Thursday, Pakistan's military chief said the armed forces will also support the newly-elected lawmakers.
General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani said the military supports the democratic process and is "committed to playing its constitutional role" of backing elected leaders.
In the meeting with top Pakistani army commanders, General Kayani rejected suggestions of a rift between the military and President Musharraf, saying it would not be in the nation's interests.
