Pakistani opposition leaders appeared divided Friday on whether to contest parliamentary elections under President Pervez Musharraf, a day after he bowed to international pressure by saying he would end emergency rule ahead of the ballot. Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto said her opposition party planned to participate in the Jan. 8 elections "under protest." "We're worried about the elections, we have our reservations, but we're going in under protest," Bhutto said in an interview with Associated Press Television News.

She later launched her party's election manifesto, promising loans for small businesses and more money for education.
