PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has extended his warm wishes to Justice Ayesha Malik on her elevation to the Supreme Court, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

In a statement on Saturday, the PPP chairman said it would augur well that for the first time in the history of Pakistan a woman had been elevated to the apex court creating a positive image of the country among the comity of nations.

He was of the view that Justice Ayesha’s elevation to the highest court of the country had opened up new possibilities for the development of women in future. It’s a step towards gender equality, Bilawal concluded.
