Aseefa Bhutto to become ‘First Lady of Pakistan’

On Sunday, 10th March, 2024, Asif Ali Zardari was sworn in as the 14th President of Pakistan for a historic second time. Now, he is likely to formally declare his daughter, Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari, as the First Lady of the country.

Aseefa, who is the youngest daughter of Benazir Bhutto and Zardari, will become the first daughter of a Pakistani president to hold the prestigious position of First Lady.

It is usually the wife of the President who holds the title, but in this unique case, Zardari has decided to bestow the honor upon his daughter.

During Zardari’s first tenure as President from 2008 to 2013, the position of the First Lady remained empty following Benazir Bhutto’s assassination.

However, after the official declaration, Aseefa will be given the protocol and privileges befitting the First Lady. This will include accompanying the President on official visits, receiving dignitaries, and hosting official functions at the Presidential Palace.
