Fauzia Wahab resigns after Davis remarks

Fauzia Wahab has resigned from the post of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) central information secretary, a private TV channel reported on Saturday.

Talking to reporters in Bilawal House, Karachi, Fauzia said she would continue to work as a party member and the PPP was like a family to her. She said that the statement about Raymond Davis’ immunity was her own and it was not the party policy.

Former federal information minister Qamar Zaman Kaira has been appointed
as the central secretary information of the party replacing Fauzia, the channel reported.

“I do not want to appear before the Lahore High Court as an office-bearer of the party. To uphold the
dignity and respect of my party I have resigned
from my post,” she added.
