ISLAMABAD - Former President Asif Ali Zardari owns an apartment in the US,” said Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry. Addressing the media outside Parliament in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said that Zardari did not declare the apartment in his assets.
“It is mandatory to declare all the assets under Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution,” he said.
Since he tried to hide his assets, he is not eligible to be a member of Parliament, said Chaudhry, adding that the PTI members will file a reference in the Election Commission of Pakistan on Wednesday.
“[Sindh PTI MPA] Khurram Sher Zaman has been given the responsibility to file the reference,” he added.
