ISLAMABAD, Feb 8 (APP): Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussian on Monday said the government was taking steps to hold senate elections in a transparent manner.

Talking to a private news channel, he said the present government wanted to hold forthcoming senate elections through open balloting and it would be helpful to stop horsetrading.

The minister said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was the only political party of the country which had taken practical action against its own parliamentarians in account of violation of party discipline during the last senate elections.

He said Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Maryam Nawaz should have to review about the statements against the national institutions.
