KARACHI, July 20 (Agencies): Adviser to the Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik on Friday submitted nomination papers for his re-election on the Senator’s seat, Agencies reported.

Earlier on July 10, Malik had resigned from his Senate membership.

Malik submitted his nomination papers from Karachi. Chief Minister Sindh Qaim Ali Shah and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leaders Raza Haroon and Dr Sagheer Ahmed were also present at the occasion.

The interior adviser said that he had resigned due to accusatory remarks from Nawaz Sharif and also because some people attached the proposed amendment in the dual nationality law with him.

After resigning from the Senate seat, Malik had said that he gave up his senatorship to openly campaign for the bill for the sake of 1.2 million overseas Pakistanis.

Malik said he was thankful to his party and coalition members for showing confidence in him.

Speaking to media representatives, Malik said that he had always respected the decisions of the Supreme Court.

He reiterated his claim that he had renounced his British citizenship and was only a citizen of Pakistan.

Malik, elected to the Senate in 2009, had earlier told the Supreme Court that he had renounced his British citizenship and would submit documentary evidence for it in court.

But a certificate presented to a three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry failed to satisfy the judges.
