The election of the Senate’s chairman and deputy chairman is going to be boycotted by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

The PTI’s political and core committee declares that it is unlawful to elect the Senate’s chairman and deputy chairman. The party has chosen to file a legal challenge to the election.

The sources from the core committee claimed that the election of the chairman and deputy chairman was unlawful and that the House of Federation was incomplete.

The constitutional plan was also violated by the Senate election that took place without Khyber Pakhtunkhwa senators being elected. According to sources, the Senate was not operating without a chairman.

The Senate Secretariat was only able to make administrative decisions. The source stated that the Senate secretary was not authorized to interpret the Constitution on his own while under duress and that the Upper House was only able to function as one department in the absence of the Senate chairman.

They said that this was the first time in a democratic regime that the Senate had stopped operating.

The PTI claimed that individuals responsible for the upper house’s non-functioning should face consequences for trampling on the constitutional structure.

The total eclipse will last for four minutes, and the eclipse will continue for five hours and ten minutes.

The eclipse will proceed into Texas, passing through over a dozen states before reaching southern Ontario in Canada, according to NASA. At around 5:16 p.m. NDT, the eclipse will leave mainland North America and go out of Newfoundland, Canada.

According to NASA, there is a path where the eclipse will be visible in its entirety, and outside of this area, spectators may notice a partial eclipse, in which the moon covers part of the sun but not all of it.

In the ensuing two decades, there won’t be another full solar eclipse. On October 2, South America will witness the second solar eclipse of the year. Yet it will just be a portion of it.
