PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has graduated from Oxford University with a Master Degree.

He was congratulated on twitter by his father Asif Ali Zardari, and his sisters Aseefa Bhutto Zardari and Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari.

In his tweet, former president and Pakistan Peoples Party Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari congratulated his son for following in the footsteps of his grandfather Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and mother Benazir Bhutto and graduating with an MA degree from Oxford University.

Sister Aseefa Bhutto Zardari also congratulated her brother Bilawal on his graduation from Oxford.
Sister Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari congratulated Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on his graduation from Oxford.

Bilawal was a 19-year-old Oxford undergraduate when his family named him chairman of Pakistan's oldest dynastic party after his mother, Benazir Bhutto, who was killed in a bomb and bullet attack in 2007, months after she returned to Pakistan from eight years in self-exile.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, now 26, is being groomed to take over the dynasty and bring his family's political party back to power.
