Musharraf resigned in the face of pending impeachment charges.
His popularity plummeted last year when he removed dozens of judges, suspended the constitution and declared emergency law.
Those moves sparked clashes and rioting throughout the country. It also helped his political rivals win parliamentary elections in February.
Musharraf ruled Pakistan for eight years and it's unclear who will succeed him.
The Parliament must decide on a new leader within 30 days of Musharraf's resignation.
