Asif Ali Zardari exiting Pakistan`s Presidency as `satisfied man`
Islamabad: Outgoing President Asif Ali Zardari has said he is leaving the presidency as a satisfied man.
Zardari made the comment after overseeing the first-ever democratic transition of power in Pakistan and relinquishing presidential powers to Parliament.
According to the Express Tribune, while speaking at a farewell dinner he hosted for journalists at the Presidency, he said that the democratic transition to power means strengthening of democracy and he is confident that Pakistan will be the ultimate winner.
Zardari said he has no regrets and is exiting the Presidency with honour and dignity.
Zardari will step down on September 08 after completing his five-year constitutional term. PML-N leader Mamnoon Hussain, who won the July 30 Presidential Election, will step into Zardari`s shoes.
