NPR's Michael Sullivan reports on Pakistan's exiled former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, who lives in London. She says she has filed papers to run in October parliamentary elections. President Pervez Musharraf, who ousted Bhutto's successor in a bloodless coup in 1999, has decreed that prime ministers who have served twice cannot run for a third term. That move excludes both ex-premiers from resuming power.
