He is the first ever Chairman of the Senate who hailed from province of Balochistan.

"After the building has been collapsed, it is being said we have done it for Balochistan".

Mr Sanjrani's name was circulating in the federal capital as candidate for the office of chairman since the independent senators-elect from Balochistan reached Islamabad and Chief Minister Bizenjo launched a campaign for him.

Congratulating Deputy Chairman Saleem Mandiwalla and Sanjrani on their election, Jamaat-e-Islam chief Sirajul Haq said the Senate polls were a step towards promoting democracy because people feared the election would not take place at all.

Earlier in the day, 52 newly elected senators including one against a vacant seat took oath of the office.

Mir Sadiq Sanjrani was elected as the new chairman of the upper house of Pakistan's Parliament on Monday.

Sanjrani was also backed by the independent senators from Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

She's mastered the art of saying what she wants not only with her music, but also with the visuals that go along with them. Taylor Swift released her "Delicate" music video less than 24 hours ago, but already it's generating quite the controversy.

Majority of the opposition parties had supported Sanjrani's candidature and announced to vote for him after he was elected as the member of the Senate for the first time on March 3, 2018 in the Senate elections, in which, half of the chamber's members were elected.

Imran Khan's party has been changing its position with regards to supporting candidates for the slots of chairman and deputy chairman.

ANP Senator Sitara Ayaz said its sole vote would go to the ruling coalition's candidates as the PPP had refused to field Raza Rabbani as its candidate for the slot of chairman.

To a question about number of parties supporting the PPP, Bilawal did not divulge details, arguing that it would benefit the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

Sadiq Sanjrani's father Khan Muhammad Asif Sanjrani is considered one of the leading tribal elders of Chagai district and now he is a member of the Chagai District Council. The PTI had early announced that it would neither vote for the PPP, nor the PML-N's nominees during the election for Senate chairman. He also served as special assistant to former chief minister of Balochistan Sanaullah Zehri.

PML-N Information Secretary Mushahidullah Khan said they had been waiting for PPP to nominate its candidate for Senate chairman.

It will be followed by oath by the members-elect under Article 65 of the Constitution and signing of the roll of members. The chairman represents both the opposition and treasury benches. He said that besides its own 34 votes, the PML-N has support from 14 votes of the JUI-F, PkMAP, BNP, MQM and Functional League.
