Islamabad [Pakistan], Mar 3 (ANI): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief and former cricketer Imran Khan has skipped voting in the Senate (Upper House of Pakistan Parliament) election that was held earlier today.
According to PTI Member of National Assembly (MNA) Shafqat Mahmood, Imran skipped voting in the Senate election as he had "other commitments". He will not be present in the Pakistan Parliament as well.
Earlier in the day, during his visit to a private hotel here, Imran evaded a question of whether his spiritual advisor had barred him from casting his vote in elections, Geo News reported.
The Senate has 104 members elected for six years, but half of them retire every three years at the completion of the term and new senators are elected indirectly by provincial and national assembly through proportional representation.
