LAHORE: The opposition-led Rahbar Committee on Thursday unanimously nominated Hasil Bizenjo as the joint candidate for the appointment of Senate chairman.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) founder Nawaz Sharif approved the name of National Party’s Hasil Bizenjo who also received nods from the nine political parties included in the Committee.

Nawaz Sharif expects Bizenjo would procure favour for Balochistan. Bizenjo has served as former federal minister for ports and shipping.

The opposition has picked a new candidate after it submitted the resolution of no-confidence against Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani to the Senate Secretariat and demanded his removal– carrying signatures of 44 senators.
