A secret ballot was conducted to vote in favor of or against the Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani as of today in the upper house of the parliament. Ony 50 votes went in favor of no-confidence motion which is less than the number of votes required to remove the incumbent chairman.

At the start of the session, 64 senators extended their support in favor of no-confidence motion to table the resolution. Opposition parties had Hasil Bazinjo as a nominee for the seat of Chairman Senate.

This has been for the very first time in the history of Pakistan that a no-confidence motion had been submitted against the sitting Chairman of the upper house of the parliament. Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani elected to the seat of Chairman and assumed the office in March last year.

Voting on the resolution concludes. 50 votes were cast in favor of the resolution. The votes required for the resolution to be adopted were 53 and consequently, the resolution has been rejected, the statement read.

Special Assistant to Prime Minister Firdous Ashiq Awan has called the senate voting results “Victory of Pakistan’s Narrative.” Next is the no-confidence resolution against the Deputy Chairman Senate for which the government needs a total of 53 votes. The no-confidence motion against the deputy Chairman was tabled by the government.

“65 Senators, out of total 104, voted by a show of hands for the no-confidence motion against Chairman Senate. Only 50 of them voted against the chairman when given an opportunity to vote through a secret ballot. The 14 who defected are the one’s government bribed or ‘seduced’,” wrote Marvi Sarmad on twitter.
