PML-N MNA Zafarullah Jamali resigns from National Assembly

KARACHI: Former prime minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali on Thursday bid adieu to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) reportedly on differences with the party head over confrontation with the national institutions.

A few days earlier, Zafarullah Jamali had suggested President PML-N Nawaz Sharif to refrain from confrontation with the institutions.

The former PML-N leader has returned to his ancestral village and would announce next course of action after consultation with the local people.

He had apprehensions against policies of the PML-N. He said the ousted PM had still not changed a bit, while he had thought that Nawaz would have been changed by now, he added.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leaders have reportedly contacted Jamali seeking him to join their parties.

Originally a supporter of the PPP, the 73-year-old politician formally launched his political career in the 1970s from Balochistan. He has also served as chief minister of Balochistan during the late 80s and 90s.
