ISLAMABAD: Deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday called for legislation against “horse-trading.”  “Horse-trading kicked off in Balochistan months before the Senate elections,” he told reporters after his appearance before an accountability court of Islamabad in connection with three references against him and his children.

On nomination of Pakistan Peoples Party Raza Rabbani as Senate chairman by him, Sharif said Rabbani, the outgoing upper house chief, was a man of integrity and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and its allies have proposed his name, fearing horse trading in selection of the chairman and deputy-chairman.

“We decided to support Rabbani during consultative meetings. The PML-N and opposition parties believe he is best fit for chairmanship.”

The ex-premier said that the PML-N has majority in Senate and added that if some opposition parties support his party, it will have sufficient vote to elect its chairman.
