KARACHI: PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said Friday the Senate chairman election 2021 “has been stolen right in front of the eyes of the people”.
Bilawal claimed that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) — the Opposition parties’ anti-government coalition — “has defeated the [PTI] government in the National Assembly and the Senate”.
“Their bias and their biased, illegal decision is right in front of you. Seven votes for the chairman of the Senate of Pakistan were cast in favour of Yousaf Raza Gillani.
“Those votes were cast properly, legally, constitutionally, but seven senators of the Senate of Pakistan were purposefully disenfranchised and Gillani sahab, despite winning, has still not sat on that seat in the Senate.
