ISLAMABAD ( News10 ) – After an upset win at the hands of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) in today’s Senate election on Islamabad seat, Prime Minister Imran Khan has made the decision to take vote of confidence from the parliament.
This was announced by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in a press conference in Islamabad along with other federal ministers.
The foreign minister said the decision would clarify everyone’s real position, adding that they will continue to fight the battle of right and wrong.
Shah Mahmood said that the results of Senate election have strengthened our narrative, and validated our concerns. Every tactic was used to secure win for Yousaf Raza Gillani.
The Foreign Minister further said that the Election Commission has failed to discharge its responsibilities and ensure a transparent election. Votes were also bought and sold in the last Senate election. Holding Senate elections through open ballot will end corruption, he added.
PDM’s joint candidate Yousaf Raza Gillani defeated PTI’s Abdul Hafeez Sheikh in an upset victory against the government in today’s Senate election.
