ISLAMABAD: A notification was issued on Monday for the appointment of senior Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) Senator Raja Zafarul Haq as Leader of House in Senate, DawnNews reported.

After seeking advice from senior leaders of PML-N, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif elected Haq to the post of leader in the Senate.

Haq will assume his responsibilities in a meeting of the Senate scheduled to take place next week. His post will be equal to that of federal ministers in the cabinet.

The position fell vacant when former Law Minister and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Senator Farooq H Naek, who was appointed Leader of the Upper House by caretaker prime minister Mir Hazar Khan Khoso in his government, submitted his resignation last week when his party lost majority in the Parliament.
