Pakistan News : President Asif Ali Zardari was given a farewell guard of honour by the smartly turned out contingent of the Pakistan’s armed forces at the President House on Sunday.
Smiling Zardari reached the ceremony which was attended by several politicians on a horse-cart.
The outgoing president shook hands with staff before leaving the President House. He was driven away in a black luxury saloon car from the sprawling residence.
Asif Ali Zardari has earned a rare distinction of being the only democratically elected President in the 66-year long history of Pakistan to have completed a full five-year Constitutional tenure.
President Asif Ali Zardari left the President House for Lahore where he is scheduled to address PPP workers at the Bilawal House.
On September 9, he will be attending the oath-taking ceremony, as a former president, of the newly elected President of Pakistan Mamnoon Hussain. This will also be another fresh addition in the political and democratic history of Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
