In his resignation letter sent on April 14, Niazi wrote, “I am resigning from the post of Prime Minister under Article 16 (1) of the Constitution.” He sent his resignation letter to Sultan Mahmud Chowdhury, the president of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
According to the Pakistani newspaper ‘Dawn’, the Secretary for Presidential Affairs. Asif Hossain has confirmed that Shah Chowdhury has accepted Niazi’s resignation. He said an official notification has been sent to the chief secretary for issuance.
