Lahore: Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif has said that he is not an astrologer who can predict victory in senate elections.
According to details, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shahbaz Sharif reached Parliament House from Kot Lakhpat Jail to cast his vote in the Senate elections.
Meanwhile talking to media, the former chief minister said that every member will cast vote according to his conscience.
“The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should ensure transparency in polls,” he added.
On the other hand, other PML-N leaders are hopeful for the victory of joint candidate of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Yousuf Raza Gillani.
Former premier Shahid Khaqan Abbasi says has said that Gillani's success is 110% certain
PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal is also optimistic about Gillani's victory. He termed the ruling party as a victim of anarchy.
Khawaja Saad Rafique said members of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) are under severe pressure.
“Today could be a major breakthrough,” he said.
It is pertinent to mention here that polling for 37 seats of the Senate is underway under the supervision of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) from Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and Islamabad.
A tough encounter is expected in National Assembly for the Islamabad seat where joint candidate of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Yusuf Raza Gilani are contesting against ruling party candidate Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh.
The current strength of lower house is 341 and PTI’s candidate apparently enjoys the support of 180 MNAs.
