09 September, 2013
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan said on Sunday that Asif Ali Zardari enjoyed immunity as president of the country and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) might open cases against him after his departure from the Presidency.
Speaking to the media after guard of honour ceremony at the President's House, he said that there was no constitutional restriction on the president with regard to taking part in politics. Separately, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said his father, President Zardari sacrificed more than 11 years of his life as a political prisoner fighting for democracy in Pakistan.
In his message on a social networking website, the PPP chairman said, "President Asif Ali Zardari lost his wife and I lost my mother in this battle, but we have won the war. Democracy has arrived." The message came hours before the president was going to receive guard of honour on his last day at the Presidency as his five-year constitutional term ended on Sunday.
