During President Pervez Musharraf`s visit to Europe, He tried to convince his hosts that the February 18 elections would be free and fair, but soon after his visit US State Department expects `some` fraud in Pakistan polls.

"Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher said at a Congressional hearing on the February 18 polls that We don`t necessarily accept a certain level of fraud but if history and previous reports are of any guide, we should expect some".

Tried to convince that far from being a political prisoner the chief justice was actually an irresponsible political agitator and an illegal squatter,but Boucher acknowledged that "kicking out the judicary is a bad move" by Musharraf but did not back demands by lawmakers that the Pakistani leader reinstate the sacked judges.
