Sarfaraz Raja (Senior Journalist):
There was a tough competition in Islamabad constituency. Mr. Yousaf Raza Gillani won the election from Islamabad seat. It is a test for the Election Commission of Pakistan to inquire about the rejected votes. Senate elections were held in free, fair and transparent manner. It is also expected that Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani will be the nominee for chairmanship. It is highly appreciable that all the political parties have shown maturity over the senate elections. It is need of the hour for the political parties to get united and take appropriate measures for transparency of the elections. Prime Minister Imran Khan always propagated transparency in the system throughout his 22-year long struggle.
