ISLAMABAD: PPP MNA Alizeh Iqbal Haider submitted on Wednesday her resignation from the National Assembly, citing "personal reasons".

Haider, who is the daughter of the late PPP leader and human rights activist Iqbal Haider, became a Member of National Assembly through the Pakistan Peoples Party quota of reserved seats for women.

Haider also served as the spokesperson for Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Her membership in the National Assembly was twice suspended because of her failure to declare her assets in a timely manner, in 2013 and 2014

However, Haider, who describes herself as a human rights activist, has also spoken out strongly in the past about controversial issues, stating that the Hudood and blasphemy laws should be amended.
