Newly elected Senate chairman meets Imran Khan in Bani Gala
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Sadiq Sanjrani, who was elected as chairman of the upper house of parliament, on Tuesday met Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan at his residence in Bani Gala.
Balochistan Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo was also accompanying the Senate chairman Sadiq Sanjrani which continued for over half an hour.
During the meeting, Sanjrani thanked the PTI chief for his support in the Senate elections. The Balochistan CM also thanked Imran Khan for standing with the people of the province.
The meeting was attended by various leaders of PTI also.
On Monday, Sadiq Sanjrani was elected as chairman of the upper house of parliament by his fellow senators, after 52 newly elected senators took their oath of office earlier in the day.
Sanjrani, a relative political unknown, hails from the southwestern province of Balochistan, and has previously served mainly in advisory and coordinating capacities for political leaders from several different political parties.
His election was backed by the opposition Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and a bloc of independent senators from Balochistan who represent a political alliance that recently broke away from the PML-N.
Sanjrani won 57 votes in the 104-member house to win the chairman’s slot, with the PPP’s Saleem Mandviwalla elected deputy chairman.
