LAHORE: PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif has stated that the opposition leader in Senate would be from her party.
According to Maryam the formula about chairman and deputy was decided in principle at the PDM meeting held ahead of elections:
“When the leaders of 11-party alliance met at Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s residence, they decided to support Yousuf Raza Gilani for Senate chairman, JUI-F’s Abdul Ghafoor Haideri for deputy chairman, and a PML-N candidate for the leader of the opposition slots,” she stated.
She pointed out that the said agreement was not meant to be altered depending on the results of Senate Election: “Winning or Losing was not discussed as a factor for any change in the decision,” she maintained.
