Abdul Quddus Bizenjo sworn in as new chief minister of Balochistan

Balochistan Assembly elects CM today

Balochistan Assembly's former deputy speaker Abdul Quddus Bizenjo was elected the new chief minister of the province on Saturday amid tight security measures.

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.

Earlier, Abdul Quddus Bizenjo was elected as new Chief Minister of Balochistan by securing forty-one votes while his rival candidate Syed Agha Liaquat Ali got thirteen votes.

Former chief ministers Sanaulla Zehri and Abdul Malik received 9421 votes and 4539 votes respectively during general elections.

"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.

Real Madrid dealt Kane blow as Levy insists Tottenham stars going nowhere
Barca, having already used the Neymar fee to sign Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele, might struggle to raise the cash. He was on loan from Atletico Madrid with Spurs eventually signing him on a permanent.

A total of fifty-four lawmakers in a 65-member House took part in the voting.

On Friday, Bizenjo, an MPA from Awaran, had submitted five nomination papers each proposed and seconded by members of allied parties.

Today, Balochistan has elected the third chief executive in a span of around four and a half years and the latest selection comes on the heels of resignation by Sanauallah Zehri, who assumed the post in December 2015, however, relinquished the charge owing to a no-trust move tabled against him by disgruntled Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) legislators as well as opposition parties.

The political crisis began with Bizenjo submitting a no-confidence motion against the chief minister on January 2. He resigned as deputy speaker when CM Nawab Sanaullah Zehri nominated Raheela Durrani as the new speaker of the provincial assembly. Zehri was forced to resign after some members of his own party, the PML-N, joined the opposition in its demand to remove him from office.
