Pakistan's national and provincial parliaments were voting on March 3 in Senate elections that are seen as a test of the PML-N party of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Talking to media persons outside the Punjab assembly in Lahore, the Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah expressed with confidence that all the nominated candidates of PML-N would be victorious, adding the PML-N would win all the 12 Senate seats from Punjab.
PML-N's leaders have been beset by corruption allegations, including against Sharif's younger brother, Shahbaz Sharif.
Pakistani lawmakers on Saturday began casting votes in secret for new senators in parliament's upper house in an election that looks set to boost the ruling party, as it tries to revive the political fortunes of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif. However, nothing regarding Senate polls was discussed with him, he added.

Responding to a question about Nisar "playing on the front foot" after Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif's ascent as PML-N president, the disgruntled party leader said he is not playing cricket that he would go on the front or back foot. "I used to play cricket as well, but both of us are not playing the game anymore".
The vote came as Sharif's PML-N is in disarray after the Supreme Court in July 2017 disqualified Sharif from office due to corruption charges. Some media reports suggested that Sharif had not extended an invitation to Nisar to participate in the CWC while others claimed that the ex interior minister did not show up despite being invited. He had been advising the PML-N leadership not to stride the collision course with state institutions including courts.
"PMLN now the single largest party in Senate as well", tweeted Sharif's daughter and presumed political heir, Maryam Nawaz Sharif.
