The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) quickly rejected the Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani’s suggestion to create a 10-person special parliamentary committee to discuss elections.

Speaking to reporters Thursday outside the Supreme Court, PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi stated that the party has rejected Sanjrani’s committee because “this matter isn’t about the Senate, it is about political consensus.”

According to Qureshi, the party has already chosen its three members for the committee following discussions with Imran Khan, the party’s leader. Qureshi, Fawad Chaudhry, and Attorney Ali Zafar make up the panel.

For discussions on holding elections across the nation on the same day, the ruling alliance has suggested the creation of a 10-member parliamentary committee with equal representation from both sides. 

The thaw in the rigid political scenario took place following the government’s suggestion of a parliamentary committee to hold parleys with the Opposition in line with the Supreme Court’s instruction to develop a consensus on the election date.

According Report the government suggested that the parliamentary committee should include five members from each side.

Following the meeting, Sanjrani wrote a letter to PTI seeking nominations for the committee.


The Senate chairman claimed in a letter to PTI chief Shehzad Waseem that the ruling coalition had asked him to facilitate a “political dialogue to address the ongoing political and economic crisis, including the holding of general elections.”

He wrote: “The constitutional duty of maintaining the national and political harmony vis-à-vis the national and public interest is conferred upon the Senate of Pakistan; House of Federation, being a stabilising force of the federation.

Sanjrani stated that a 10-member special committee for having political discussion is being formed, consisting of four members each from the treasury and opposition benches, and would be jointly convened by the Leader of the House in the Senate and the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate.

He further added that his office and the Senate will be on hand to help the discussions. Then he requested Waseem to furnish the names of four opposition benches members who would join the committee in two days on behalf of the PTI.

According to the sources, Sanjrani has already spoken with PTI officials Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Asad Umar, and Waseem.

It should be remembered that the Supreme Court ordered political parties to engage in talks on April 20 in an effort to come to an agreement on the date of the nation’s elections, with the administration emphasising the need of holding the elections on the same day.

On April 4, a three-member panel led by Pakistan’s Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial mandated that elections be held in Punjab on May 14.

However, the court stated that its judgement on the petition of election postponement had already determined May 14 as the date of the Punjab Assembly election after releasing its written decision in the last hearing.
