ISLAMABAD: The coalition government has decided to bring a no-confidence motion against Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani, BOL News reported citing well-placed sources.

According to reports, the PML-N and PPP have agreed to remove Sanjrani as Chairman Senate. In this regard, a requisition has been prepared and signatures are being received by senators of both parties.

The PML-N and the PPP have started contacting other parties having representation in the Senate to gain their support. The Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA), Awami National Party (ANP), and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) have been approached to gather support for the no-trust motion.

Sources privy to the development have said that Pakistan People’s Party’s senator Yousuf Raza Gilani is a strong candidate for the next chairman.
