Bhutto's party open to deals, not 'dictatorship'

The leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party yesterday said he is willing to explore all possibilities for the return of democracy to his country, but none that would extend President Pervez Musharraf's "dictatorship."

In an interview with The Washington Times, Asif Ali Zardari, the widower of assassinated former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, said, "Coalitions and power-sharing are concepts under normal politics and constitutional rule. ... We are open to all options to ensure restoration of democracy, but we will not become part of any excuse to maintain dictatorship."
