Pakistan's prime Minister has confirmed up to 500 people have been arrested across the country, in a crackdown which began after the President declared a state of emergency.
Speaking at a media conference during the past hour, the Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz said the elections, which has been scheduled for January, could be delayed for up to a year.
But he added that the government hasn't yet made any decision.
President Musharraf says the move follows what he calls 'rising Islamic extremism'.
