Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday nominated Shibli Faraz as the Leader of the House in Senate.

In this regard, Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani has been forwarded a request. 

According to media reports, the Senate Secretariat has received Prime Minister Imran's letter regarding the nomination.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) Raja Zafarul Haq previously served as Leader of House in Senate. Earlier this month, PML-N nominated Haq as its opposition leader in Senate.

Faraz has been a member of Senate since 2015. His uncle, Barrister Syed Masood Kausar, has served as the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor and his father, Ahmad Faraz, is one of country's acclaimed poets.
