On Sunday 21st March a press conference was held in Lahore which was addressed by the JUI-F (Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl) chief Fazlur Rehman, and vice president of PML-N (Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz) Mariam Nawaz. Mariam Nawaz said that the senate opposition leader will be from PML-N, and this is a “principled decision” and the PDM (Pakistan Democratic Movement) leadership has already agreed upon it. This statement of Mariam came days after the PPP leadership lodged a protest with PML-N leadership over the choice to nominate Azam Nazeer Tarar for the senate opposition leader. Mariam stated that all members of PDM had agreed that Yousaf Raza Gilani of PPP will be the Senate chairman, Abdul Ghafoor Haideri of JUI-F will be the deputy chairman, and therefore the opposition leader is going to be from PML-N. Mariam said there’s no room for change during this decision.
