ISLAMABAD: The Senate accepted Nawabzada Lashkari Raisani’s resignation on Wednesday, Express News reported.
Raisani had resigned from the Senate in 2012 after he developed differences with a few federal ministers.
He had also ended his association with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the same year.
The former president of the PPP in Balochistan, Raisani had said on Tuesday that he was seriously considering joining the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N)
Many political leaders, including Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl, had extended offers to him, but Raisani has remained indecisive, his aide told The Express Tribune. Raisani developed considerable clout in the province as the brother of the former chief minister Nawab Aslam Raisani and in his own right as a PPP leader there.
He refused to rejoin the PPP despite intense efforts by the party’s leadership to woo him back and consequently moved to Karachi from Quetta where he had lived for over 10 months in isolation.
