Rehman Malik began his career in the FIA switching on to politics and then beginning career as a politician holding many portfolios including that of the interior minister from 2008 to 2013. It was at his residence in London that Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and Mian Nawaz Sharif signed the famous Charter of Democracy that paved the way for rather fractious cooperation between civilian political forces of the country. He remained close to the top leadership of PPP and was highly rated there.
