Members of the Punjab Assembly will be voting on two Senate seats today (Thursday). Voting will begin at 9am and continue till 4pm.
Two seats were left vacant after the Supreme Court disqualified PML-N’s Haroon Akhtar and Sadia Abbasi for having dual nationalities. Sadia is the sister of former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
The PML-N is nominating Saud Majeed and Saira Afzal Tarar for the Senate seats, while the PTI has nominated Waleed Iqbal and Seemi Ezdi, who is Jahangir Tareen’s sister.
