Musharraf under mounting pressure to resign in face of possible impeachment

But Pervez Musharraf insisted that accusations against him "won't stand".

The ruling coalition has prepared charges against Mr Musharraf, focusing on violation of the constitution and misconduct.

But the president rejected the charges saying: "Not a single charge in the impeachment can stand against me.

"No charge can be proved against me because I never did anything for myself, it was all for Pakistan."
UPDATE. Who will replace him?
