The coming Presidential Election has assumed an extraordinary significance in the country. A large number of people believe that the timing and result of the Presidential election will mainly determine the outcome of the General Election. Eligibility of the incumbent to contest the coming Presidential Election while he holds the position of the Chief of Army Staff or after he decides to relinquish that position is one of the key issues surrounding the coming election. Constitutionality and legality of the current assemblies, whose term and mandate is about to expire on dates ranging from November 15, 2007 to December 11, 2007, as the Electoral College for the coming Presidential Election is a subject of intense debate in the country. Many argue, from the point of political morality, that the current assemblies whose mandate is about to expire, can not give fresh mandate to the President.
