ISLAMABAD - National Party (NP) chief Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo said the victory of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) led alliance proved that some forces are “more supreme” than parliament.
Despite having a majority in the upper house, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) failed to secure either of the top slots due to alleged political engineering by the PPP co-chairman, Asif Ali Zardari.
Addressing the house following the election of the chairman and deputy chairman, the NP leader lambasted the PPP, saying: “It is not the party of Benazir Bhutto or Zulfikar Ali Bhutto that won today.”
“The parliament has been completely defeated. Those supreme forces have won and have shown that they can make the Parliament a market,” he said, adding: “Today I am ashamed to sit here.”
