Zardari should give up post of PPP chief, says LHC

Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari should "quit political activities" and give up the post of the chief of the ruling PPP in line with a judgment issued last year, the Lahore High Court has said.

The Chief Justice of the High Court, Umar Ata Bandial, asked Wasim Sajjad, counsel for the federal government, to present a clear point of view on behalf of the President about implementing the court's order of May 12, 2011 that said Zardari was expected to quit as the chief of the PPP.

Bandial, who is heading a five-judge bench that is hearing a petition seeking action against Zardari under the contempt of court law, gave Sajjad time till February 6 to file the President's reply.
