Pakistani Senate Elections 2021 Results
The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) will become the largest party in the Senate after the upcoming elections in March, but it certainly will not be able to take control of the upper house of parliament and will still have to. rely on your allies and opposition parties even to carry out simple legislation.
A careful calculation made on the basis of the party’s position in the National Assembly and the four provincial legislatures, which form the electoral districts for the elections of members of the upper house, and taking into account the complicated voting system, shows that If all MPAs vote strictly according to party policy during elections, then the country will have a fully hung Senate, as both the ruling and opposition alliances are expected to have almost exactly the same number of seats.
Up to 52 senators are expected to retire (50 percent of the 104-member chamber) on March 11 after completing their six-year term. However, this time there will be no voting for the four seats of the former Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) after their merger with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

Elections will be held to elect seven members in general seats, two women and two technocrats in the four provinces. In addition to this, elections will also be held on a minority seat in both KP and Baluchistan.
