Bilawal to make formal entry to politics tomorrow

Islamabad: Pakistan People’s Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will make his formal entry into the Pakistani politics at an event to be held tomorrow to mark the fifth death anniversary of his mother Benazir Bhutto.

Both 24-year-old Bilawal and his father will make speeches at the event to be held outside the Bhutto family’s mausoleum near the PPP’s stronghold of Naudero, said the confidant who did not want to be named.

During his speech at the event in Garhi Khuda Bux tomorrow, Bilawal is expected to make public a report on the investigation into Benazir Bhutto’s assassination by a suicide bomber after an election rally in Rawalpindi in 2007. Bilawal himself cannot contest polls till he turns 25 September next year.

Zardari, who is the co-chairman of the PPP, has convened a meeting of the party’s central executive committee at Naudero on Friday. This meeting is expected to fine tune the PPP’s campaign for the polls, party insiders said.
