(In what states does Musharraf now leave the country?) He spent most of his speech today defending his own record, saying the economy is better now. statistics show that people here have gotten poorer than in other neighboring countries, so people differ on this matter. In terms of democracy, Musharraf talked about how February's election was free and fair, but others would point to the fact how those elections weren't free and fair, and they were thought to be rigged. They would also talk about his sacking of the judges. So people would say being democratic is not a virtue of Musharraf.
