Former Prime Minister Zafarullah Jamali passed away at the age of 76, on Wednesday.

According to details, Zafarullah Jamali, who served as the Prime Minister of Pakistan in early 2000’s has passed away at a hospital in Rawalpindi after suffering a heart attack last week, his family confirmed.

Mr Jamali was the first and only elected Baloch prime minister, had served during the military regime of General Pervez Musharraf. However, after his resignation in 2004, he was replaced by Shaukat Aziz.

He won the 2013 general elections as an independent, but later joined the PML-N and used to sit on the treasury benches in the previous assembly.

The PML-N leadership had issued a show-cause notice to Jamali in October 2017 when he did not vote in line with the party’s policy on the bill allowing Nawaz Sharif to assume the office of the party president despite his disqualification by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case.

Jamali resigned from the National Assembly only days before the completion of the assembly’s term, citing health concerns.

During his college days in Lahore, Jamali first entered the country’s politics in 1964, supporting the sister of Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Fatima Jinnah against the then military ruler, Mohammad Ayub Khan, in the presidential election.

He was also arrested along with the other political leaders who were supporting Fatima Jinnah in the elections of 1964.
