Zardari replaces Shah with Rehman Malik

Ex-minister appointed after reservations over opposition leader by parties

KARACHI – Former president and Pakistan People’s Party Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari has nominated former interior affairs minister Rehman Malik as focal person for contacts with other political parties in the wake of the ongoing political crisis.

Party sources confirmed that Rehman Malik would meet different leaders and keep Asif Zardari informed about the latest situation. Malik has been appointed focal person after reservations expressed by opposition parties about the role of Khursheed Shah, the opposition leader in the National Assembly.

The sources also pointed out that the senior PPP leadership was unhappy with Khursheed Shah over his meetings with political leaders without taking top leadership into confidence.
