. Speaking to media representatives in Quetta, where the co-chairman of the People's Party of Pakistan met with the chief minister of Balochistan, Abdul Kudos Bizhenho, Zardari said that he did not want him to abandon the chairman of the party's Senate, but Rabbani did not address the PPP reservations regarding the 18th amendment
According to close sources, Rabbani, as chairman of the Senate, has always given priority to the supremacy of the Constitution.
He also made the largest number of votes against the government, which is 73 times
Sources were further told for the first time in history, Rabbani banned the entry of federal ministers into the House, adding that the chairman also suspended membership in the foreign minister Affairs Hawa ja Asif.
Sources said Rabbani reprimanded the federal government for not calling a session of the Council of Common Interests.
They mentioned that due to the formation of an ad hoc committee, the Chairman of the Senate insured that the 18th Amendment had been implemented.
After the elections to the Senate and subsequent negotiations on the appointment of the chairman of the upper house Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday said that he does not want Raza Rabbani to continue working at the top post
When he was asked by the media in a joint press conference with the head of JUI-F Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, that PML-N demonstrated its willingness to support Rabbani, the PPP co-chairman gave a crooked grin and said: "Thank you very much, I do not want this."
