Asifa Bhutto

Daughter in Pakistan will become the country’s first lady

For the first time in the history of Pakistan, a daughter will become the country’s ‘First Lady’, who is Asifa Bhutto who will get this important post?

Asifa Bhutto: The post of First Lady of Pakistan will be given to the daughter of President Asif Ali Zardari. The country’s newly appointed President Asif Zardari has decided to formally recognize his daughter Asifa Bhutto Zardari as the country’s first lady. Usually the first lady of the country is the wife of the President.

If seen, this will be the first time that a Pakistani President has announced his daughter for the post of First Lady. This historic step has elevated Asifa Bhutto to the coveted position of First Lady, marking an important chapter in the political history of the country.

Asifa will be given protocols and privileges

Sources claimed that President Zardari will declare Asifa Bhutto as the First Lady of Pakistan. ARY News reported that after the official announcement, Asifa Bhutto Zardari will be given protocol and privileges befitting a First Lady. The decision is particularly notable because Asifa Bhutto is set to become the first daughter of a sitting President to hold the position of First Lady.

On Sunday, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Zardari was sworn in as the 14th President of Pakistan, officially taking charge as the head of state for the second time, Dawn reported.

Became President of the country for the second time

Leaving aside military chiefs, Zardari is the only civilian candidate to be elected president of the country for the second time. Previously, he served as the President of Pakistan from 2008 to 2013. According to the Election Commission of Pakistan, Zardari on Saturday secured 411 electoral votes to defeat his rival and Pashtunkha Milli Awami Party (PKMAP) chief Mahmood Khan Achakzai, who could get only 181 votes.

Zardari completes five-year constitutional term

Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faiz Isa administered the oath to Zardari at Rashtrapati Bhavan in Islamabad today. Apart from newly elected Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and outgoing President Arif Alvi, Army Chief General Asim Munir, Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Chairman General Sahir Shamshad Mirza and PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari were also present with him.

Zardari is one of the four democratically elected presidents who have completed their five-year constitutional term, Dawn reported.
