“What will be the fate of Senators elected on their votes..and the chairman and deputy chairman elected on the votes of those senators..whole process is void ab initio.” wrote Asif.
Imran had revealed the names of lawmakers who sold votes during the Senate elections and announced to expel them from the party. He had said that nobody took any action on the buying and selling of votes during the Senate election. Imran claimed that between 30-40 votes were sold in the Senate elections.
