ISLAMABAD (AP) — Zafarullah Khan Jamali, a veteran Pakistani politician who served as the country’s prime minister from 2002 to 2004 died on Wednesday at a hospital in the garrison city of Rawalpindi, days after he suffered a heart attack at the age of 76.
Jamali served as prime minister during the tenure of ex-dictator Pervez Musharraf. He resigned over differences on several political issues with Musharraf, who is currently living in self-imposed exiled in Dubai.
Musharraf was forced to resign in 2008 when politicians backing him lost parliamentary elections. He seized power in 1999 when he ousted the government of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in a military coup.
Even after his resignation, the soft-spoken Jamali known for his decency in politics, never spoke against Musharraf.
