After the Senate elections being held in the first week of March and Sadiq Sanjrani, an independent candidate and a Senator from Balochistan has been elected as the Chairman of the Upper house of the Parliament of Pakistan after securing 57 votes out of 103 of total votes cast. It was a big upset when he defeated the ruling party candidate Raja Zafar-ul-Haq. And also Deputy Chairman Senate newly elected is Saleem Mandviwala.
Now whole cabinet and all parties are focusing on the very important position which is the leader of the opposition in the upper house of the Parliament. Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has announced their nominees for the leader of the opposition in Senate. And they came up with Sherry Rehman to be the opposition leader in the Senate but many experts and experienced politicians suggest that leader of the opposition should be from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI). PTI has not finalized any name for the leader of the opposition in Senate but they are considering to nominate Senator Azam Swati for the position.
