 Dar takes oath as Senator amid PTI protest
ISLAMABAD    -   Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lead­er Ishaq Dar on Tuesday took oath as a senator, after living five years in self-imposed exile in the Senate Chairman Sadiq San­jrani administered the oath to Ishaq Dar. PTI members tore the copies of the agenda of the meeting to register their protest and also surrounded the dais and chanted slogans. Dar was elected to the upper house of the parliament on a technocrat seat in the elec­tions held on March 3, which was notified by the Elec­tion Commission of Pakistan on March 9, 2018. Ishaq Dar reached Pakistan late Mon­day along with Prime Minis­ter Shehbaz Sharif after an ex­ile of more than five years. In February this year, Dar had requested Senate chairman to virtually administer the oath in the wake of restoration of his election notification, but his request was turned down.
