Bizenjo elected as new chief minister of Balochistan

Pakistan       by Haider Ali Sindhu | Published

The Balochistan assembly on Saturday elected Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid's (PML-Q) Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo as the new Provincial Chief Minister, a few days after Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) Sanaullah Zehri relinquished his Charge amid a no-confidence motion.

Agha Syed Liaqat Ali of the Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) was the only contestant against Bizenjo after Abdul Rahim Khan Ziaratwal of the same party withdrew his candidature in his favour.

The results were announced by the Balochistan assembly Speaker Raheela Durrani. He took oath as Balochistan CM at 5pm today. Ali secured 13 votes.

"Maintenance of public order shall remain the utmost priority with the protection of the life and property of the people without any discrimination", Bizenjo told the House.

Meanwhile, addressing the House after his election as Chief Minister, Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo said that he will use all of his capabilities to bring Balochistan at par with other provinces of the country.


Commentators' have taken note of the fact that Zardari's close aide was sitting in the assembly as Bizenjo was voted in and had taken the passenger seat of fresh CM's vehicle as he left for Governor House for swearing-in ceremony. When he joined the PML-N-led coalition government in the province, Bizenjo was nominated as the deputy speaker of the Balochistan Assembly in June 2013.

Bizenjo was elected as MPA from Awaran in general election of 2013 after bagging only 544 votes.

The crisis heightened with the resignations of several cabinet members and advisers to chief minister Zehri.

On January 2, Bizenjo and 14 like-minded members of Balochistan Assembly submitted a no-confidence motion against Sanaullah Zehri of the PML-N, triggering a political crisis in the province.

Zehri stepped down last week after opposition benches filed a no-confidence motion against him.
