In March 2008, Sherry Rehman was declared re-elected Member of the National assembly as PPP candidate from the Sindh province on the list for reserved seats for women. Previous to this she was an MNA from 2002 to 2007 and Central Information Secretary as well as President of Policy Planning of the Pakistan Peoples Party. Her interests in the National assembly include foreign and security policy, women’s status and rights legislation, and media policies.

During her five years in the parliament, Sherry Rehman moved a number of bills related to media freedom, women’s empowerment and human rights. She is the architect of all the five PPP bills tabled in the National assembly: Women Empowerment Bill, anti-Honor Killings Bill, Domestic Violence Prevention Bill, affirmative action Bill and Hudood Repeal Bill. She also moved two Bills for the Media: the Freedom of Information Bill and the Press act, which prevents working journalists from being arrested under the 1999 Press Ordinance.

People who live by their principles are loved and respected by all no matter wherever they are in the world. It is heart breaking to see what is happening in Pakistan at the moment and the incidents which led to Ms Rehman's resignation are disappointing in a democracy but at the same time it is heartening to know that someone in Pakistani politics can give up privileges on principles. As a non partisan Pakistani living abroad I am very impressed by her brave and swift decision. I wish Ms. Rehman all the best in life and politics.

I salute you on your moral courage which you showed .You are the first politician in the history of Pakistan who resigned on the basis of principles.Baji Sherry Rehman ZINDABAD.

N Ahmed Khan ( London,United Kingdom) Saturday, March 14, 2009 7:18:35 AM (MDT - USA)
Your resignation in a situation where the PPP government has crossed all the limits and its government is rapidly turning into a political dictatorship, should be an eye opener for PPP. I appreciate your moral courage. Leave positive feedback for Sheri guys. She has proved herself otherwise.
