KARACHI - Aides to former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf have advised him to delay his return to the country due to political instability, but he has yet to make a final decision, sources close to Musharraf told Reuters on Thursday.

Musharraf addressed a rally via video in Pakistan's biggest city and commercial hub, Karachi, last week and announced his plan to return between Jan. 27 and Jan. 30 and take part in parliamentary elections due to be held by 2013.

The former president, who seized power in a 1999 coup, has been living in Dubai for almost three years and is currently visiting London.

Musharraf resigned and left the country after his allies lost a parliamentary election in 2008 and the new coalition government threatened him with impeachment.

Earlier this month, Musharraf said that Pakistan should consider establishing ties with Israel.
