ISLAMABAD: Preparations for the major change in the senate have been completed as the polling for Chairman Senate would be held through secret balloting on Thursday.
The instructions for the balloting say no one would be allowed to take mobile phone in polling booth and taking pictures of ballot or showing ballot to anyone is prohibited.
Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser met Sadiq Sanjarani yesterday and expressed full support against opposition’s no confidence move. The leader of the house Shibli Faraz said opposition’s demand for the resignation of Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani is not a good tradition.
On the other hand nominee for Chairman Senate Hasil Bizinjo invited opposition leaders on dinner to discuss matters related to polling. He said we are ahead in number game with 65 votes.
Sources said Sanjarani passed Wednesday as his last day in office and he has shifted all important files to his personal residence.
It is worth mentioning that President Arif Alvi has appointed barrister Saif as presiding officer for Senate Chairman polls.
The presiding officer will announce the success or failure of no confidence move after counting. Voting on the move against Deputy Chairman Saleem Mandviwala would also follow the same procedure.
