Pervez Musharraf's resignation as Pakistani president has been formally accepted on Monday, state- run PTV reported.
The PTV quoted the speaker of National Assembly Fahmida Mirza as saying that a notification regarding Musharraf's resignation has also been issued.
Fahmida Mirza pointed out that it was the first time in 1973 constitution for some president to tender his resignation to the speaker of national assembly.
According to Pakistan's constitution, the chairman of the senate has taken the charge as acting president of Pakistan.
Musharraf on Monday announced he would resign one day before the ruling coalition was expected to table his "charge sheet" in National Assembly.
The Pakistan People's Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz ( PML-N) announced on Aug. 7 that they would initiate proceedings to impeach Musharraf.
