ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Senator Raja Zafarul Haq was notified as Leader of the House in the Senate on Monday, as the history repeated itself after a gap of about 13 years.
It is pertinent that when former President and army chief General Pervez Musharraf, through a coup, had sent packing PML-N government on October 12, 1999, Raja Zafarul Haq was Leader of the House at that time.
The PML-N leader will now represent Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif in the Upper House of the Parliament. His notification was issued after prime minister accepted resignation of Farooq H Naek, who was made Leader of the House on April 26.Within a day or two, Pakistan People’s Party Parliamentarians’ Senator Aitzaz Ahsan is expected to be notified as Leader of Opposition in the Senate.
