Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, who is facing impeachment by parliament, says he will resign, BBC reported.

The charges against the president include violation of the constitution and gross misconduct.

Mr Musharraf said he had always put the interests of Pakistan and its people first and was confident that the charges against him would not stand.

But he said this was not the time for more confrontation and he was resigning after consulting his advisers.
