Prime Ministerial candidate for the Pakistan Muslim-League-Qaid (PML-Q) party, Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, gestures as he speaks during an interview with an unseen AFP correspondent in Lahore on February 14, 2008. The PML-Q's candidate to be prime minister if it wins the polls, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, says the reason for the absence of Musharraf in their campaigning materials was simply to keep in line with the law."Under the constitution the president is above politics, and nobody can use his name, his photograph. This doesn't mean we have left him," Elahi told AFP in an interview at his imposing Lahore family home. AFP PHOTO/Arif ALI (Photo credit should read ARIFALI/AFP/Getty Images)
