Balochistan Assembly to elect new CM today

QUETTA: After a week-long political crisis, the Balochistan Assembly is all set to hold its session on Saturday to elect new Leader of the House.
The opposition in the Balochistan Assembly has announced full support to newly nominated Chief Minister, Abdul Quddus Bizenjo after Sanaullah Zehri resigned due to lawmakers’ no-confidence motion.
Addressing a joint news conference in Quetta, Deputy Opposition Leader in the Assembly, Engineer Zamruk Khan Achakzai along with other coalition partners hoped that the nominated Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo would establish peace and security in the province and address the public issues.
It is worth mentioning here that a no-trust motion against Balochistan Chief Minister was scheduled to be presented in the assembly however, the session was postponed for an indefinite period of time.
The CM will hold an important press conference shortly in which he will present his viewpoint.
At least 14 provincial lawmakers signed on the motion against Sanaullah Zehri last week.
Former deputy speaker Mir Quddus Bizenjo had tabled the motion. It was told that the blockage of funds and pending decision on the deputy speaker added fuel in fire. – NNI
