Express May 05, 2011

Five senators of Pakistan Muslim League –Quaid (PML-Q) demanded separate seats in the Upper House on Thursday as the party decided to come in alliance with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) by accepting to join the federal cabinet.

The five senators Jamal Leghari, Tariq Azeem, Naeem Ali Chattha, Javed Ali Shah and Gulshan Saeed decided to sit in the opposition benches in protest against the party’s decision.

The senators claim that they have reservations with the alliance as it was against the spirit of democracy. They alleged that the step was taken without getting all the stakeholders on board.
