Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar was sworn in as the caretaker prime minister of the country on Monday.
Meanwhile, Kakar's resignation as a senator was accepted by Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani after he was named the ninth caretaker prime minister of the country.
Independent Senator Kakar has been a very active politician since being elected to the Senate in 2018. In order to fulfil his obligations as the leader of the interim setup, he resigns in an effort to maintain his impartiality.
An announcement from the Senate Secretariat stated, "Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, Member Senate of Pakistan, has resigned his seat, as per his Principled stance of neutrality, on becoming the caretaker Prime Minister, by writing under his hand in person before the Chairman Senate."
According to clause (1) of Article 64 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, his position has become vacant as of August 14 as a result of his resignation, which the Honourable Chairman Senate accepted with pleasure.
The development comes a day after Kakar surrendered his membership in the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) and resigned as a senator.
Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, Kakar said: "Owing to the fundamental responsibility conferred upon me as the caretaker Prime Minister, I have decided to surrender my membership in the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) and relinquish my Senate position."
The caretaker premier-designate also requested that the people pray for him so that he can comply with their expectations by fulfilling his fundamental responsibility in the best manner.
