Estranged former finance minister, Muhammad Ali Akhtar, resigned from Pakistan Peoples Party on Tuesday.
Akhtar, who was also the president of Nagar district, had developed differences with the party’s leaders after he was ignored when the party tickets were allotted to candidates.
Information Secretary Rana Nazeem told journalists in Gilgit that Akhtar’s resignation has been accepted. “Instead of replying to the show-cause notice sent to him for violating party rules, Akhtar sent his resignation which was accepted,” added Nazeem.
