PPP to launch Aseefa Bhutto into politics


The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has decided to officially launch Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari into politics in the upcoming general elections, sources have revealed.

PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari will decide from which constituency Aseefa will contest the election.

The youngest daughter of former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto recently became part of a controversy when she accompanied her brother, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, during his four-day state visit to Japan. She was widely criticised for going on a state visit, without holding any position.
