ISLAMABAD: Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah has asked the government to settle the issue pertaining to election of Senate chairman with consensus. If PM Nawaz Sharif contest but Opposition wins that would be a good omen for the government, he added.
Talking to media at the parliament he further said that if the government thinks it could win is an indication that it has slim chances of winning. Despite PMLN being in power Peoples Party and opposition parties are winning elections, he added.
This is a good chance for the government to further policy of reconciliation, he said adding that the government should bring down with the opposition to field a joint candidate.
The government issued an incorrect ordinance in a hurry for one Senate seat, he added.
