KARACHI: Adviser to the Prime Minister on Interior Affairs Rehman Malik was re-elected unopposed as a senator from Sindh on Monday, Express News reported.
Speaking to the media in Karachi after the move, Malik said, “I would like to thank the Pakistan Peoples Party for showing confidence in me and giving me a chance to serve the people, again.”
He said that nobody is above the law and that it should be equal for everyone.
Malik said that it was “very important” for him to thank Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain for the support that he had extended to him and the PPP. “Altaf bhai always talks about strengthening democracy. I would like to dedicate all my efforts to his cooperation.”
Just a week after he resigned as a senator, the PPP had decided to again put up his name for a seat in the upper legislative house.
The prime minister’s adviser on interior affairs had tendered his resignation from the senate on July 10. The Supreme Court had earlier suspended his senate membership for holding dual citizenship.
