ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party stalwart Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan is likely to be elected to the Senate unopposed if no one opposes his nomination and the election commission does not reject his papers, The Express Tribune has learnt.
Aitzaz is the only candidate who has filed his nomination papers against a technocrat and a general seat.
Sources said that eleven other candidates of Senate from Punjab also stand to be elected unopposed.
While Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Kamran Michael has already been elected from the minorities’ seat, the party’s Ishaq Dar is also likely to be elected on technocrat seats.
