Hours after being sworn in for a second five-year term, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf Thursday announced that the emergency rule he imposed on November 3 will be lifted on December 16.

The measures, which included the partial suspension of the constitution and dismissal of the top judiciary, would end because of a general improvement in the situation in the country and the democratic process, and military successes in the fight against terrorism, Musharraf said in a televised address to the nation.
