Benazir Bhutto Net Worth:
A scion of the politically strong Bhutto family, she was the oldest daughter of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, a former prime minister himself who founded the centre left, social-democratic Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP). She holds the standing of being the first female leader of a Muslim state. In 1982, three years after her father’s assassination, 29-year old Benazir Bhutto became the chairperson of the PPP—a political party, making her the first girl in Pakistan to head a major political party. In 1988, she became the first woman to be elected as the head of an Islamic state’s authorities; she also continues Pakistan’s only female prime minister. Noticed for her magnetic power and political astuteness, Bhutto drove initiatives for Pakistan’s economy and national security, and she executed societal-capitalist policies for industrial development and increase. Additionally, her political philosophy and economic policies emphasised deregulation (especially of the financial sector), adaptable labour markets, the denationalisation of state-owned corporations, and the withdrawal of subsidies to others. Bhutto’s popularity waned amid downturn, corruption, and high joblessness which afterwards led to the termination of her government by old-fashioned President Ghulam Ishaq Khan.In 1993, Bhutto was elected for another period after the 1993 parliamentary elections. In 1996, charges of corruption levelled against her led to the closing judgment of dismissal of her government by President Farooq Leghari. Bhutto conceded her defeat in the 1997 Parliamentary elections and went into exile in Dubai in 1999.Nine years after, in 2007, she returned to Pakistan, having achieved an understanding with President Pervez Musharraf, who allowed her amnesty and took back all corruption charges against her. Bhutto was assassinated in a bombing on 27 December 2007, after leaving PPP’s last rally in Rawalpindi, two weeks before the scheduled 2008 general election where she was a top opposition candidate.
