Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is optimistic about the victory in Senate Elections 2021 where candidates are contesting for 37 vacant seats in the upper house of the Parliament.
According to the details, in a statement, Chairman PPP said that the Pakistan Democratic Movement has already won today’s election.

Polling for 37 seats of the Senate is underway under the supervision of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) as a total of 78 candidates contest from Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and Islamabad.
In the National Assembly, the first vote was cast by PTI’s Shafiq Arain while the second one was cast by federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda.
All Senate candidates from Punjab were elected unopposed last month after disqualification or withdrawal of papers by other contestants.
Today, polling started at 9am and will continue till 5pm without any break. ECP staff reached the Parliament House in Islamabad early morning on Wednesday. The campaign for this year’s election ended at midnight on March 3.
Moreover, the voting is taking place through secret ballots after a long-drawn open ballot controversy kept the ruling and opposition parties engaged in a war of words as well as a legal battle before the much-awaited Supreme Court decision.
