ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday nominated Sadiq Sanjrani as the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI)’s candidate for the slot of chairman Senate.
The decision to this effect was taken at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad. It was attended by the senior PTI leadership and the chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani.
The development regarding the nomination of Sadiq Sanjrani for the slot of Chairman Senate was also confirmed, in a tweet, by Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz.
On the other hand, Shibli Faraz said the PTI firmly believed that open balloting was the only way to eliminate horse-trading in the Senate elections.
“The prime minister has conveyed his concerns over victory of former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in the senate elections,” he said adding that the PTI also had a copy of the leaked video of Gilani’s son.
