ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has offered deputy chairmanship in the Senate to Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam- Fazl (JUI-F) Secretary General Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, media reported Monday.

As per reports, the JUI-F leader was offered the seat by PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari in a meeting with his allies in Islamabad.

Leaders of MQM, ANP, JUI-F, PML-Q, BNP (Awami) and representatives from FATA were invited to the meeting called by the PPP to reach a consensus on the candidates for the offices of Senate Chairman and Deputy Chairman.
