Islamabad: PPP Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar on Thursday tendered his formal resignation from the Senate due to party leadership’s unhappiness with his “political positions”.

“Allhamdulillah, I have formally submitted my resignation today. I’m thankful for the positive response [and] support across party lines which was far beyond my imagination,” Mr Khokhar said in a tweet.

Addressing rumors about his political future, he said that he is not joining any political party.

“For those who are speculating about my political future, let me state clearly that I’m not joining any political party. I will try hard to maintain my independence,” he stated.

On Tuesday, Khokhar said that he was conveyed that the party leadership was not happy with his political positions and wanted his resignation from the Senate. In response, he said that he agreed to resign.

According to media reports, several PPP leaders were expecting Khokhar to resign not only from the Senate but also from the party since the time when he had quit the key position of the official spokesperson for party chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari in December 2020.
