Sherry Rehman resigned as the Pakistani Ambassador to the United States on Tuesday.
Rehman has submitted her resignation to caretaker Prime Minister Mir Hazar Khan Khoso.
Rehman, a former journalist, was information minister for President Asif Ali Zardari after the restoration of civilian rule following a 2008 election. But she resigned in March 2009 over a crisis in which the government was refusing to reinstate judges sacked under the military regime of president Pervez Musharraf.
In 2011, she was appointed as Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US after Husain Haqqani resigned in the wake of the Memogate scandal.
