Asif Ali Zardari

Asif Ali Zardari




Asif Ali Zardari, born on July 26, 1955, in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan, is a prominent Pakistani politician and the co-chairperson of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP). He is the husband of Benazir Bhutto, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, and the son-in-law of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, a former President and Prime Minister of Pakistan. Zardari is widely known for his significant political influence and his tenure as the 11th President of Pakistan from 2008 to 2013.

Zardari hails from a Baloch family that has a notable history in Sindh. His father, Hakim Ali Zardari, was a landowner and a politician affiliated with the PPP. Asif Ali Zardari received his early education in Karachi and later attended Cadet College, Petaro, before completing his schooling at Saint Patrick's High School. He pursued further studies in business at the London School of Economics and Business Studies, though he did not complete his degree.

Zardari's political career began in earnest after his marriage to Benazir Bhutto in 1987. During Bhutto's two terms as Prime Minister (1988-1990 and 1993-1996), Zardari held various positions within the government, including serving as a member of the National Assembly. However, his tenure was marred by allegations of corruption and involvement in various scandals, earning him the nickname "Mr. Ten Percent" due to accusations of receiving kickbacks. He was arrested multiple times and spent a considerable period in prison, both during Nawaz Sharif's government and under General Pervez Musharraf's regime, facing numerous charges of corruption, which he consistently denied and claimed were politically motivated.

Following Benazir Bhutto's assassination in December 2007, Zardari emerged as a key figure in Pakistani politics. He was appointed co-chairperson of the PPP alongside his son, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. In the general elections held in February 2008, the PPP won a significant number of seats, leading to the formation of a coalition government. In September 2008, Zardari was elected President of Pakistan, succeeding Pervez Musharraf who had resigned amidst mounting pressure.

As President, Zardari's tenure was marked by several critical challenges, including dealing with terrorism, economic instability, and the aftermath of natural disasters such as the 2010 floods. He played a pivotal role in restoring parliamentary democracy in Pakistan by relinquishing many presidential powers through the 18th Amendment to the Constitution, which transferred significant authority back to the Parliament and the Prime Minister. His presidency also saw strained relations with the judiciary and the military, as well as ongoing allegations of corruption and mismanagement.

Zardari's term ended in 2013, and he chose not to seek re-election, making way for a peaceful transition of power. Despite stepping down from the presidency, he remained an influential figure in Pakistani politics, continuing to lead the PPP and actively participating in political activities. His legacy is complex, characterized by both his efforts to strengthen democracy in Pakistan and the persistent allegations of corruption and controversy that have surrounded his career.
