After the opposition parties announced that they were looking to remove the current Chairman Senate from his position, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf too has prepared a resolution against the Deputy Chairman Senate’s removal, ARY News reported on Friday.

The opposition parties in the senate with big numbers, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) have unanimously decided to oust Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani which has triggered a counter reaction from the party in the federal government PTI who looks to de-seat Saleem Mandviwalla.

A motion of no confidence is reportedly ready and can be tabled any time by PTI, sources claimed.

Sources further revealed that the motion has so far accumulated 26 signatories from sitting senators.

Sources in the government also revealed that they had tried to stay away from this strategy but they had been pushed too far by the opposition.

The assurance came during a meeting between the prime minister and the Senate chairman in Islamabad.

Leader of the House in the Senate Shibli Faraz, Federal Minister for Defence Pervez Khattak and Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Azam Khan Swati were also present on the occasion.

Sources relayed the prime minister assured that the government would try to thwart a motion of no-confidence against Sanjrani.

“People having self-interests are hell-bent on damaging democracy,” said the prime minister.

better vote of no confidence against CM instead of Governor Raj in my opinion, but at least they all should be behind the bars and recover the looted money as earliest as possible

I dont think its a good move.
First off, Mandviwala was actually against the no confidence move against Sanjrani.
Secondly, govt should have waited for the outcome of the move against Sanjrani to see if there were enough votes to save him. Then they could have gone ahead and removed Mandviwala with the confidence, that they had the votes to save Sanjrani, and hence, they would have the votes to remove Mandviwala.

This may backfire, as the govt technically doesnt have the vote count required.
