Mandate issued after the alliance was formed
Amid growing public resentment against the ruling government in Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), all major opposition parties in Pakistan have formed an alliance in the name of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). Only after the announcement of this alliance, the Imran government issued this arrest warrant against Zardari.
In early September, an Islamabad court sentenced the former president and others accused of money laundering in connection with the fake accounts case. Zardari, who has been accused by the NAB in several corruption cases, was released on bail from the Islamabad High Court last year on medical grounds.
After the warrant was issued, the party released a statement claiming that Zardari was transferred to hospital after feeling ill on Sunday.
PPP said in its statement on tweet: “The doctors have carried out the necessary medical checks and tests”. The Pakistani newspaper Dawn News reported that Zardari was admitted to a hospital in Karachi.
