    It looks like we had the same brain fart which allowed Gilani to win in Islamabad to now lose against Sanjrani in Senate chair elections.

    Diesel got his diesel worth without any blowback. Ultimately, maryam aunty is loser since PPP also has a government in Sindh to fill its coffers

    The Senate elections should be direct like the US. No more running on multiple seats leading to by-elections later either.

      I really don't think such a change is possible because:

      1- There can not be a consensus on that.
      2- Conducting general elections is super duper expensive.
      3- Senate elections on a bigger scale will mean bigger drama every three years on top of the regular general elections drama every 5 years.

      The more feasible thing would be to make sure the existing laws are implemented properly.

        Why would it be expensive if they do it at the same time as the general elections?
        They can always stagger it like how they do it with the US Senate.

        The by elections are an actual waste of resources if you are worried about expenses.
