Rehman Malik announces resignation from Senate membership
Karachi, July 10 (ANI): Adviser to the Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik has announced his resignation from the Senate membership.
Malik said he had tendered his resignation on Monday, and added that he had renounced his British citizenship and that the dual nationality bill had not been proposed in order to facilitate him, reports The Dawn.
Malik said he would not acquire citizenship of a foreign country in the future.
He admitted that he had established a company in the UK during exile, but had resigned from his business positions on directions from former premier Benazir Bhutto, before stepping into practical politics.
Malik further said he also wanted to resign from the position of adviser but was stopped by President Asif Ali Zardari from doing so.
Earlier in June, a Supreme Court bench hearing the dual nationality case had suspended Malik's Senate membership. As a consequence, he had also lost the coveted position of federal interior minister.
He was later appointed by Zardari as Adviser to the Prime Minister on Interior. (ANI)
