March 3, 2021

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed has calimed the victory of PTI candidate Hafeez Shaikh in the on-going Senate elections.

The interior minister said that the politics of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will become weaker as the PDM will not pull off a surprise win in the Senate polls. He also claimed that Hafeez Shaikh will emerge victorious against Yousaf Raza Gillani.

“The PDM made the polls look like it’s a life-or-death situation. It’s all about intention and our candidate will triumph. No one has even told us that they are voting in our favour. We are mature people. We act according to our conscience," the former railways minister maintained.

Senator Faisal Javed said that today Pakistan will gain victory and the corrupt mafia will be defeated.

Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry expressed hope that the PTI will win the on-going Senate elections easily.

It is pertinent to mention here that the candidates are contesting for 37 vacant seats in the upper house of the Parliament.

In a tweet, the minister said, "PTI will easily win today's Senate election in Islamabad. Abdul Hafeez Sheikh will get more than 180 votes, whereas, all the opposition parties will get about 155 votes altogether."

Fawad Chaudhry also claimed that the ruling party will emerge as the largest party in the upper house after the elections.
