Pakistan's exiled former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will return home on 10 September to challenge President General Pervez Musharraf, he says.
Mr Sharif's announcement came as former PM Benazir Bhutto claims she is nearing a deal to share power with Gen Musharraf.
Correspondents have said Mr Sharif could still face jail if he goes home.
Mr Sharif said he planned to "start a decisive struggle against dictatorship", adding that Gen Musharraf should step down from the presidency and from his army post.
