Former President Asif Ali Zardari, representing the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), has issued a series of significant statements outlining the party’s stance and priorities as the 2024 general elections approach. Zardari has underscored the PPP’s readiness to engage in political alliances and confront opponents within the democratic process, emphasizing the vital role of healthy competition in upholding the foundations of a democratic system. This unwavering commitment to democratic principles and fostering a competitive political landscape underscores the PPP’s dedication to a transparent and equitable electoral process.
On the matter of repatriating undocumented Afghan residents in Pakistan, Zardari has advocated for their return to Afghanistan. This position is in line with the imperative to address Islamabad’s financial challenges, as hosting a substantial number of undocumented Afghan individuals can be a significant burden. Moreover, ensuring the safe return of the Afghan population to their homeland contributes to regional stability and security.
Zardari has also shed light on the PPP’s past contributions during its governance in Sindh. These include initiatives aimed at youth employment, development projects designed to enhance the overall well-being of the province, and the exploration of economic opportunities in the maritime sector. The projected revenue generation of $5 to $6 billion from marine resources underscores the party’s unwavering commitment to fostering economic growth and prosperity in the region.
