Senator Is Sworn In
On Tuesday, Ishaq Dar took the oath of office as a senator, despite objections from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPs.
Dar took the oath of office from Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani after returning to Pakistan earlier in the day after spending almost five years on “medical leave” in the United Kingdom.
The PML-N leader fled the country while on trial for corruption in 2017.
As he arrived into the Senate hall, PML-N leaders greeted him by thudding their desks.
PTI senators, on the other hand, swarmed around the chairman’s rostrum and chanted words like “absconder” as he took the oath of office.
