QUETTA: In an unprecedented move, political parties in Balochistan are poised to finalize a consensus formula to secure the unopposed election of all 11 senators from the province. Sources within the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have disclosed that negotiations are underway to ensure a smooth allocation of senate seats among key political stakeholders. Former caretaker prime minister Anwar ul Haq Kakar is also expected to be elected unopposed from Balochistan. He is backed by the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) and JUI.

According to reliable sources, the proposed distribution of senate seats is as follows: PPP to be allotted 3 seats, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) 3 seats, Jamiat ul Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) 2 seats, National Party 1 seat, Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) 1 seat, and Awami National Party (ANP) 1 seat. This allocation reflects a concerted effort to accommodate various political interests within the province.

A formal announcement regarding this arrangement is anticipated in the near future, indicating a significant step towards consensus-building among political factions in Balochistan. Notably, former caretaker Prime Minister Anwar ul Haq Kakar emerges as a prominent candidate representing BAP, with backing from JUI, further solidifying the coalition’s stance.

This collaborative approach underscores a commitment to political stability and representation in Balochistan, paving the way for a constructive and inclusive senate. As the electoral process unfolds, all eyes are on the forthcoming announcement, heralding a new chapter in Balochistan’s political┬álandscape.
