Zardari may transfer powers to PM

Decision awaits draft 'constitutional package'

The Pakistan People's Party has announced that President Asif Ali Zardari will transfer powers to the prime minister the moment the committee working on constitutional package finalises its recommendations.
The Dawn quoted PPP secretary-general Jehangir Badr as saying this while speaking at a book launch "Asif Ali Zardari, aik mudabar siasatdan (a mature politician)" at Alhamra here on Saturday.
Badr praised Zardari for his sacrifices and contribution to Pakistan and democracy.
Speaking at the function, Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah said Zardari became the PPP chief on the will of Benazir Bhutto and proved to be a good leader.
He added that Zardari bravely faced imprisonment and emerged as a mature politician.
He also said that Zardari and the PPP government would face conspiracies bravely and would not allow conspirators to succeed in their nefarious designs.
Meanwhile, PPP Baluchistan chief Lashkari Raisani has said that conspiracies hatched against Zardari are actually conspiracies against Pakistan.
Speaking at a book launch here, Raisani said that Zardari has faced media trials throughout his political career.
The book 'Asif Ali Zardari: A Mature Politician' by writer and journalist Daud Ahmad, is a political biography of the PPP chairman.
The Daily Times quoted Raisani as saying that President Zardari has made the country stronger by acknowledging that the rights of the Baluch people had suffered a great deal due to Pervez Musharraf's policies.
He went on to say that those involved in the fall of Dhaka were now conspiring against Pakistan, and that they were eventually bound to fail.
Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah was also present at the occasion.
