Institutions Playing Impartial Role in Senate Polls: Bilawal

LAHORE: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Wednesday that opposition parties would give the government a tough time in the Senate election and added that institutions are playing impartial role.

The opposition would compete in a democratic way, the PPP chairman said at a press conference in Lahore.

The Pakistan Democratic Movement has nominated Yousuf Raza Gilani as its candidate for the Senate chairman’s post. He will contest the election from Islamabad.

The Senate election is scheduled to be held on March 3.

About the NA-75 Sialkot by-election, Bilawal said it exposed the ones who rigged the 2018 general election. The ruling PTI had been unable to win a single seat in the recent by-polls, he noted.

The ECP has withheld NA-75 results. The returning officer in its report told the watchdog that presiding officers had tampered with the election results.

He recommended re-polling at 14 polling stations in Sialkot’s Daska tehsil.
