The Pakistani government on Saturday opened the President House in capital Islamabad for the general public as part of its plans to allow public access to government-owned buildings.

Tahir Khushnood, spokesman for the President House, said the public can enter the government building by showing their national identity cards from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Khushnood said the decision of opening the President House is in line with the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's promise that common people will be allowed to enter state-owned buildings, adding that governor's houses of the country's eastern Punjab, south Sindh and northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces had already been opened to the general public.

Located in the highly-secured Red Zone area of Islamabad, the President House, which was once a no-go area for the public, represents a modern step pyramid architectural style and is flanked by the Prime Minister House on the one side and the parliament building on the other.

People were allowed to visit a mini-zoo, green front and rear lawns and the historic halls, where oath-taking ceremonies of several heads of governments and states, ministers have taken place.
