Karachi: Pakistan People's Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the son of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and President Asif Ali Zardari, has become the chief of the Zardari tribe.

The chief's seat fell vacant after former chief Hakim Ali Zardari passed away.

The 81-year-old father of President Zardari died due to multiple organ failure, according to doctors at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS).

The President's spokesperson Farhatullah Babar said President Zardari decided to forego the title of chief and has passed it on to his son Bilawal.

Babar said Bilawal's initiation will be held at an appropriate time.
