Cant the court see that Zardari is doing the dual role of leading PPP and presiding PPP meetings in Presidence house?

How can Zardari be still allowed to carry on with his PPP work? Isn't this conflict of interest and why is the Apex court taking such a long time to decide the outcome? Zardari should be stopped for using public funds for his political party.
