ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has nominated Sadiq Sanjrani as the PTI's candidate for the slot of Chairman Senate.

This was confirmed by Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz in a tweet on Thursday.

In a related development, Sanjrani met with National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser. Responding to questions posed by journalists following the meeting, Qaiser said: “His personal opinion is that there is no better candidate than Sadiq Sanjrani [for the post of the chairman].”

He said a session of the National Assembly would soon be convened in order for Prime Minister Imran Khan to take a vote of confidence. 181 members of the lower house of Parliament will vote for the prime minister, he said.

Prime Minister Khan decided to take a vote of confidence from the NA after the government and coalition partners-backed candidate Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh lost a Senate seat from Islamabad to a joint candidate of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), former premier Yousuf Raza Gilani.
