Shaukat Tarin, the former Finance Minister and leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, resigned from the upper house of parliament on Sunday, according to Dawn News, which was accepted by the chairman of the Pakistan Senate.
Citing financial and health reasons, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf declared his permanent resignation from the party and politics.
