The Opposition Parties including Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and PTI have already announced Sadiq Sanjrani and Saleem Mandviwala as their joint candidates for the Chairman Senate and the Deputy Chairman Senate respectively.

Slamming the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), which was backing new Senate chairman Sadiq Sanjrani, the NP chief said it is not the party or Benazir Bhutto or Zulfikar Bhutto who won today.

Following the adjournment of the session, nomination papers for the Senate chairman and deputy Chairman were submitted at the house of 104-members.

If Rabbani was not nominated, Sharif would make public the name of party's own nominee for the slot, he said.

"In the name of Balochistan, provincial assemblies were turned into markets", he said.

Abdul Qudus Bizenjo while speaking on the occasion praised Asif Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto. The first had been the swearing in of Senator Krishna Kohli earlier in the day, Dawn news reported.

Sadiq Sanjrani has five brothers and he is eldest among them.

Both parties agreed to vote for a senator-elect from Balochistan for Senate chairman office and a candidate from FaTa for deputy chairman.

Today, Fata and MQM senators have said that they will also be voting for Sanjrani and Madviwala. During the previous PPP government, Sanjrani was assigned a post at the Prime Minister Secretariat.

Bizenjo's charged speech was interrupted by Sanjrani, who asked him to reserve today for congratulating the members.

Initial surveys, media reports and announcement by the PML-N leaders suggested that Haq will win by thin margin but in the end he lost by a big margin. He also served as special assistant to former chief minister of Balochistan Sanaullah Zehri.

The PTI showed its readiness to support a PPP candidate after a meeting between Bizenjo and Imran Khan at the latter's Banigala residence on Sunday.

Newly elected senators take oath on Monday. Oath by the member (s)-elect, if any and this will be followed by election of the chairman Senate.

The process to elect the deputy chairman was going on. While, the PPP has overall 20 seats in the Senate and the PTI stands third major party in the Senate with 13 seats.

After having the in-house discussion, a meeting was held with allied parties' heads - including Jamiat Ulema Islam-F chief Fazlur Rehman, National Party chief Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo and Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party chief Mahmood Khan Achakzai.

Federal Minister Mushahidullah Khan in an informal talk with media persons said they enjoy support of at least 54 senators.

PML-N's Raja Zafarul Haq, who was also running for the top office, got 46 votes only.
