This significant step was further elucidated through a post on the President of Pakistan's official account on X, formerly Twitter.

President Asif Ali Zardari’s decision not to accept a salary from the government amid Pakistan’s economic challenges speaks volumes about his commitment to responsible financial stewardship. Through a statement released by the President Secretariat Press Wing, Zardari conveyed his intention to lead by example, urging prudent management of the nation’s finances and opting to alleviate any strain on the national exchequer by forgoing his salary.

This significant step was further elucidated through a post on the President of Pakistan’s official account on X, formerly Twitter. The message underscored Zardari’s dedication to fostering fiscal discipline within the country, emphasizing his resolve to avoid burdening the treasury with unnecessary expenses.

Zardari’s ascent to the presidency for the second time, following a resounding victory on March 9, marks a pivotal moment in Pakistan’s political landscape. The swearing-in ceremony, conducted at the prestigious Aiwan-e-Sadr in Islamabad, saw Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa administering the oath of office.

Defeating his opponent, Mahmood Khan Achakzai, supported by the PTI-backed Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC), by a considerable margin, Zardari solidified his mandate as the nation’s leader.

Born in 1955 and educated in Karachi, Zardari’s journey to the presidency is intertwined with the legacy of his late wife, Benazir Bhutto, a former prime minister tragically assassinated in December 2007. Having previously served as the 11th president of Pakistan from 2008 to 2013, Zardari brings a wealth of experience and a deep-rooted commitment to public service to his second term.
