The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday provided President Asif Ali Zardari with ample time to resign from his post as the co-chairperson of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and suspend political activities in the President House after completing the proceedings on petitions of contempt of court, filed against the president for holding dual posts. A three-member bench headed by, Chief Justice of LHC, Justice Umar Atta Bandial, was hearing the contempt of court case against the president. During the hearing, various lawyers presented their arguments and said that the president should follow the court’s orders. The petitioners AK Dogar and Azhar Saddiqi told the court that the president was using President House for the purpose of political activities and national wealth is being also spent on this purpose. They added that according to constitution the president of the country should be impartial and non political person. The petitioner urged the bench to give one more chance to President Zardari to quit his one post otherwise action against him should be taken if the court order was not implemented. The chief justice responded to the arguments and said that the issue under consideration has constitutional importance and the verdict will also be in accordance with the constitution of Pakistan. He further added that the court will provide the president with ample time to resign from his post as the co-chairperson of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and suspend political activities in the President House.
