Pakistan Peoples' Party (PPP) leader Dr. Qayoom Soomro has claimed that the party enjoys the support of 57 senators for the position of Chairman Senate.

Khan said that senators from FATA and Balochistan should be given top slots and respect in the Senate.

He added that only the ex-PM had the authority to make all decisions, stressing that the PML-N held support for the position of Senate chairman and deputy chairman.

Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi met with ousted premier Sharif and exchanged views on the upcoming elections for the Senate chairman and deputy chairman positions.

On the other hand, the ruling PML-N, without caring for the presence of the Balochistan members in the capital, went into a huddle with its supreme leader Nawaz Sharif in the chair to chalk out a strategy for the March 12 oath-taking of the newly elected senators and the election of chairman and deputy chairman the same day. "And if PPP's leadership does not want to field Rubbani as candidate for Senate chairman, we will find someone from our own fold", he said, adding that he was already in touch with Mehmood Khan Achakzai, Hasil Bizenjo and Maulana Fazlur Rehman over the matter. Also, Zardari will meet senators from FATA later on in the same regard.
