ISLAMABAD - Former President Asif Ali Zardari is likely to be disqualified as member of National Assembly over non declaration of assets.
As per the media report, the federal government has decided to file a disqualification reference against Pakistan Peoples' Party co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari in the Election Commission of Pakistan for concealing his assets.
Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Wednesday that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has directed its Sindh lawmaker Khurram Sher Zaman to file a reference against Zardari for not mentioning his foreign assets in the nomination papers.
“Zardari owns an apartment in the United States. Under Article 62/63, he was bound to declare his assets which he didn’t. He is not eligible to remain a member of the parliament anymore,” Chaudhry said.
