Efforts afoot to ensure transparent Senate polls: Shibli

PESHAWAR (Dunya News) - Minister for Information Shibli Faraz says the government is making efforts to ensure transparency in upcoming Senate elections but opposition of open balloting in the Senate elections by the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is beyond understating.

Talking to media men in Peshawar today (Saturday), he said a transparent electoral system strengthens democratic system in the country but the opposition doesn’t want to abolish the culture of cash from Senate elections as they failed to bring transparency in their ten-year term.

The Minister said the government is trying to bring forward talented and skilled people in politics and PTI parliamentarians will vote for its party candidate in the Senate elections.

About the recent video scandal of horse trading, he said a committee has been constituted which will probe the matter in a transparent manner.
