Exiled former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto urged the country's president and military leader on Wednesday to fulfill promises he made about upcoming elections by the end of the month, when her party will consider whether to enter a political alliance that would restore democracy. Bhutto said her party has been negotiating with President Gen. Pervez Musharraf for almost a year about a possible alliance. He made a commitment to take several confidence-building measures, but nothing has happened, she said. "So my party is asking, is it just the talk, or is it going to turn into a walk?" she said. "We would need to see the fulfillment of those commitments in the next two to three weeks before my party needs to take a final decision on where we stand."
