"Democratic transition to power means strengthening of democracy and I'm confident that Pakistan will be the ultimate winner," Zardari said while speaking at a farewell dinner he hosted for journalists at the Presidency on Monday night.

"I have no regrets. I'm exiting the Presidency with honour and dignity," said 58-year-old Zardari, who will step down on September 8 after completing his five-year term.

PML-N leader Mamnoon Hussain, who won the July 30 Presidential Elections, will succeed Zardari.

The President said the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) will extend complete support to the PML-N government in tackling the challenges like terrorism and economic recovery. "But at the same time it is also our democratic right to criticize wrong decisions of the government," he said.

Talking about the performance of the previous PPP government, he admitted that it might have committed failures but democratic transition of power is its biggest achievement.
