According to media sources, Pakistan army wants President Zardari to quit. An army source informs it would refrain from taking clandestine actions or coup, as it could have national and international repercussions. Gen Kiyani has demanded the Supreme Court of Pakistan to hold serious investigation into the matter and punish all those involved.
The memo scandal has worsened the tension between Pakistan’s civilian and military leadership. Still, the analysts believe that the power rests with the army. It can force Zardari to step down especially if he is found guilty in the Memogate scandal.
