QUETTA: In a significant development showcasing political consensus and cooperation, Balochistan recently witnessed the unopposed election of several prominent figures to the Senate. Former caretaker Prime Minister Anwar ul Haq Kakar, Awami National Party (ANP) leader Aimal Wali Khan, Syedal Khan Nasar, Shahzaib Durrani of Pakistan Muslim League (N), Sardar Al Haji Omar Gorgaig of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Jan Muhammad Buledi of National Party (NP), and Ahmed Khan Khilji of Jamiat ul Ulema e Islam (F) emerged as senators-elect, unopposed.

Kakar Backed By BAP, JUI F

Anwar ul Haq Kakar, supported by the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) and JUI F, secured his seat, demonstrating the backing of key political factions. However, in a gesture of goodwill and unity, PPP decision-makers opted to elect Aimal Wali Khan as a senator from Balochistan, fostering cross-party collaboration.

The unopposed election of senators from Balochistan underscores the concerted efforts and consensus among political parties in the Balochistan Assembly. This cooperative spirit aims to ensure effective representation and uphold democratic principles in the region’s legislative processes.

Efforts On To Elect Remaining Senators Unopposed

Efforts are now underway to replicate this unopposed election model for women and technocrat seats from Balochistan. Political stakeholders are actively engaged in negotiations to maintain the spirit of unity and consensus, fostering a conducive environment for the advancement of democratic ideals and governance in the province.
