ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Haider Zaidi tweeted the property tax bills of a New York apartment allegedly owned by the Pakistan Peoples’ Party co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has filed a reference with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) against Zardari for hiding the property in his nomination papers.
The petition submitted by PTI’s Khurram Sher Zaman and Firdous Shamim Naqvi moved the ECP Sindh to take notice of the matter and disqualify Zardari as the member of the National Assembly. The provincial election commissioner maintained that only ECP Islamabad could take an action over it.
PTI files reference with ECP seeking disqualification of Asif Ali Zardari. The property documents tweeted by Zaidi mention address of the apartment as: 524 East 72 Street, Apt 37F, NY, NY Manhattan 10021.
The PTI minister, earlier on December 20, tweeted the alleged sale deed of the apartment which mentioned the PPP leader as the grantee/buyer.
