Sherry Rehman resigns
ISLAMABAD: Federal Information Minister Sherry Rehman resigned from her ministerial slot on Friday night to protest the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA)’s blocking of a private TV channel without taking her into confidence, sources told Daily Times.
Despite repeated attempts to contact her, Sherry was not available to confirm the news. However, sources close to the former minister insisted she had resigned as the federal minister for information and broadcasting.
Separately, sources and a private news channel claimed that neither President Asif Ali Zardari nor Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani had accepted Sherry’s resignation yet.
Earlier, senior Pakistan People’s Party leader Mian Raza Rabbani resigned as Leader of the House in Senate and federal minister for inter-provincial coordination. zulfiqar ghuman
