Islamabad: Asif Ali Zardari has quit the office of Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) co-chairman, making his son Bilawal Bhutto the party’s patron-in-chief.

The decision was taken in view of a case in the Lahore High Court (LHC) against the president’s dual office.

According to the Dawn, Wasim Sajjad, a counsel for the federation, had informed the LHC that Zardari was a co-chairman of the PPP, which was a “private organisation”.

PPP secretary-general Jehangir Badr and information secretary Qamar Zaman Kaira have been replaced with former Punjab governor Sardar Latif Khosa and former governor of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa Barrister Masood Kauser, respectively.

In the recent intra-party election of the PPP Parliamentarians, Makhdoom Amin Fahim and Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf were elected president and secretary-general, respectively, the paper said.
