Dr Safdar Ali Abbasi or Safdar Abbasi (26 December 1957) is a Pakistani senator and the central leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).

Abbasi was born in the Larkana District of Sindh, Pakistan, on 26 December 1957. His family has long been involved in local as well as national politics. abbasi''s mother, Dr. Mrs. ashraf abbasi, was at one time Deputy Speaker of the National assembly of Pakistan. abbasi attended aitchison College, Lahore, completing Cambridge and Intermediate studies before going on to pursue a medical degree at Dow Medical College, Karachi. He was interested and involved in local politics during his youth.

Abbasi became a worker of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), as he approved the Dogma of the late President and Premier of Pakistan Zulfiqar ali Bhutto. He was exiled during the martial law period. In 1986 he became a political assistant to Benazir Bhutto, and when Benazir Bhutto became Prime Minister in 1988 was appointed his Political Secretary, a position he retained through 1993.

In March 1994, abbasi was elected for a six year term to the Senate of Pakistan, where he served on the Senate Standing Committee on Commerce, Local Government and Rural Development and on the Senate Standing Committee for Health, Social Welfare and Special Education. In 2006, he was re-elected for an additional six year term.

After Benazir Bhutto''s assassination
Safdar abbasi and his wife, Naheed Khan, faced many problems after Benazir Bhutto''s assassination on 27 December 2007 in Liaquat Bagh. Both were considered very close to Benazir Bhutto and sidelined under the new leadership of asif ali Zardari, along with other close advisers of the Benazir Bhutto

Not only them, but it is a general impression since the tragedy, that many of the party workers who were close to Buttho have been ignored by asif ali Zardari, including well known party worker and leader of the lawyers movement in Pakistan aitezaz ahsan. Many new figures took the close positions to Zardari. Safdar and Naheed even have been held responsible for the death of Ms. Bhutto, of which both denied and asked Zardari to contradict. But there was no answer or contradiction from Zardari or his newly appointed aides.

Dear Abbasi, If you don't have lots of money then you are safe from Mr. Zardari.
