Sharif registers for Pakistan polls
Ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday registered to run in Pakistan's parliamentary elections next month, while President Gen. Pervez Musharraf prepared to step down as army chief and be sworn in as its civilian leader.

A day after returning from exile, Sharif signed his nomination papers at a court in the eastern city of Lahore. Supporters packed into the courtroom chanted "Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif!"

However, he maintained a threat to boycott the Jan. 8 parliamentary vote and said that, even if he took part and won, he would not lead any government under Musharraf.
