BIOGRAPHY

Asif Ali Zardari was bornon 26 July 1955 in Karachi, Pakistani, is Former President of Pakistan. Asif Ali Zardari began his professional life unsuccessfully attempting to pursue a political career but eventually his determination and political ties helped him rise to the rank of the president of his nation.Much of his political recognition came from his wife’s much more successful career. She was the first female Prime Minister of Pakistan. This political power was abused in Zardari’s hands. The couple was continuously enveloped in scandal. Whenever his wife lost political power, he was consistently jailed for abuses such as corruption, murder, and money laundering. He was generally unpopular and disliked up until his wife’s assassination. This political upset left her party supporters sympathetic to her husband, and they hoped he could fill her role as leader of the group. It was this wave of support which propelled him into the running for the first democratically elected President of Pakistan. Once he assumed power, his scandalous behavior continued and both prior and new corruption charges resurfaced throughout his term. His term was rattled with problems including government default and an ‘International Monetary Fund’ bailout. Once his time as President ended, he announced his lack of interest in continuing his political career, though he hopes to help his son regain power
