Abdul Qadir Gilani, son of former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, on Saturday resigned from his Punjab Assembly seat, reported a private TV channel. He resigned from the seat as he had won NA seat in Multan in by-election last month. The junior Gilani won the seat, vacated after his father was disqualified by the Supreme Court of Pakistan for not implementing court orders in NRO case.

Qadir Gilani defeated an independent candidate supported by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and the PTI.
