PPP’s Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar resigning from Senate

Islamabad (Web Desk): PPP Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar said on Tuesday that he had “gladly” agreed to resign from the upper house of parliament after it emerged that the party leadership was unhappy with his political position.

“Met a senior leader from the party today. He conveyed that the party leadership wasn’t happy with my political positions and wanted my resignation from the senate. I gladly agreed to resign,” Khokhar said in a series of tweet.


“As a political worker, I cherish my right to express my opinions on matters of public interest,” the PPP stalwart said and added, “Thankful to the party leadership for giving me the senate seat from Sindh. Differences aside, It’s been a wonderful journey with them and wish them the best.”


Khokhar — who resigned as PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s spokesman in December 2020 — has been critical of the government since its inception. He also refrained from becoming a state minister in April.
