New Balochistan CM, 14-member cabinet take oath

PML-Q’s Abdul Quddus Bizenjo

Earlier today, Balochistan Assembly elected Bizenjo as the new CM, days after former chief minister Sanaullah Zehri stepped down, ahead of a no-confidence motion against him.

Following the ouster of ex-PM Nawaz Sharif from office in a corruption scam past year, the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) suffered another major blow on Saturday when Abdul Quddus Bizenjo, a candidate of its rival party, was elected CM of the restive southwestern Balochistan province.

In order to retain his position as chief minister, Zehri required the support of 33 members from a house of 65.

Bizenjo was voted in as the third chief minister in four years. He was elected after former CM Nawab Sanaullah Khan Zehri stepped down from his post on the day a no-trust motion moved by opposition members was to be taken up by the House.

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. He was elected from the PB-41 constituency.

On Friday, Bizenjo submitted his nomination papers, which were proposed and seconded by members of allied parties.

The cabinet members are: Tahir Mehmood Khan, Sardar Sarfraz Khan Domki, Nawaz Jangez Khan Marri, Mir Sarfraz Ahmed Bugti, Rahat Jamali, Abdul Majeed Abro, Asim Kurd Giloo, Mir Amir Rind, Ghulam Dastagir Badini, Muhammad Akbar Askani, Sheikh Jaffar Khan Mandokhel, Agha Raza, Manzoor Ahmed Kakar and Prince Ahmed Ali.

Sako extends revival as Palace see off Burnley
No one in the Premier League waits for it to happen, and I thought first half (against Palace ) we were playing a bit like that. "I am very careful about statistics and I have no desire to start celebrating here in the middle of January".

Speaking on the floor of the assembly, Bizenjo thanked all the lawmakers who had supported him.

Born in 1974, Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo completed his initial education in his native town of Shindi located in remote Awaran tehsil, and secured a Master's degree in English from the University of Balochistan in 2000.

He was re-elected in 2008 on PML-Q ticket and served as minister in Nawab Aslam Raisani's cabinet during its five-year tenure.

Speaker Raheela Hameed Durrani made the official announcement.

Bizenjo from Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) is the former deputy speaker of the assembly and played role in the ouster of Zehri.

But, a thing that make his selection different from others is number of votes which he got during 2013 General Elections.

The chief minister said "I am grateful to all the members of the assembly for supporting us in the no-confidence motion".
