    ISLAMABAD, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- The chief of opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Nawaz Sharif Monday reiterated to struggle for the trial of former president Pervez Musharraf and vowed to reach the "dictator" to their logical end, local TV channel reported.

    "The violators of constitution must be punished. Those nations can't ever be successful who ignore to punish their offenders," the former Prime Minister said while addressing Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting of his party, according to the private TV ARY News.

    The CEC met Monday and discussed party affairs and its reorganization. Sharif has been appointed chairman of the central organizing committee until new party elections.

    He has been authorized to appoint committees at center and all tehsil levels and make all political and management decisions.

    Moreover, all organizational bodies of the PML-N have been dissolved and their office-bearers discharged.

    In his address, the party chief said that his party did not want to discuss the matters for toppling someone's government, adding that PML-N would not be part of any plan to destabilize Pakistan, its democracy and the democratic institutions.

    On July 31, Pakistani Supreme Court ruled that Musharraf's decision to impose emergency rule and dismiss dozens of senior judges in 2007 was unconstitutional.

    Musharraf's rival Nawaz Sharif has been demanding of the government to put Musharraf on trial for suspending constitution and high treason.
