Talking to media after meeting Balochistan Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo, Zardari said that the decision for chairman Senate will be taken after consultations from all allies.
Minister of State for Information, Marriyum Aurangzeb, on Saturday alleged that political rivals Imran Khan and Asif Zardari are engaged in horsetrading in the upcoming polls for the Senate chairmanship. The PML (N) and its allied parties at their consultative meeting on Wednesday agreed to support the candidature of incumbent Chairman Senate Raza Rabbani if his name was once again proposed by the PPP.
The PPP leader alleged that Mr Rabbani also did nothing to remove the party's concerns and reservations on the issue of the implementation of the 18th Constitution Amendment.
Pakistan's Senate comprises of 104 members and a clear majority to replace the outgoing Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani, whose office term will end on March 11, need at least 53 votes, which no single party has got.
He revealed that no any PML-N delegation contacted his group, adding that he can speak with the government on this issue. While, the PPP has overall 20 seats in the Senate and the PTI stands third major party in the Senate with 13 seats. "We will see how we can accommodate Balochistan".
Ronaldo scores twice in Real Madrid win
Real Madrid have won their three league trips to Eibar , scoring 10 goals on aggregate (3.3 on average). Gareth is doing well but there are other players, too, and there are important games left to play.
Thanking Mr Khan for his support, the chief minister said they would try to convince Mr Zardari that the Senate chairman should be nominated from Balochistan.
To a query, he said the PTI will not vote for the PPP and PML-N.
"We feel that time has come for the two main parties to offer a sacrifice".
To a question, he said there would be chances of horse-trading for election of chairman and deputy chairman of the Upper House.
While addressing a Press Conference in Islamabad, Imran Khan announced to support the candidate from Baluchistan for the Senate Chairman and the Deputy Chairman from Federally Administrated Tribal Areas (FATA). He said Mr Achakzai, Maulana Fazl and Mr Bizenjo were with the party and they had the required numbers in the Senate.
