QUETTA: Governor Balochistan Syed Zahoor Ahmad Agha has convened session of the Balochistan Assembly (BA) tomorrow (Friday) at 10 am to elect the new Leader of the House. Nomination papers for the Leader of the House will be received and submitted today, according to Governor Balochistan Syed Zahoor Ahmad Agha.
A session of the Balochistan Assembly has been convened at 10 am on Friday in which the election of the Chief Minister of Balochistan will be carried out under Article 130 (4) of the Constitution and Rule 18 of the Rules of the Balochistan Assembly.
The papers will be received and submitted from the office of the Secretary Assembly by 5 pm and the papers will be scrutinized while the new Chief Minister will be elected tomorrow (Friday).
The new chief minister will be elected after former chief minister Jam Kamal Khan tendered his resignation owing to over month long political crisis. The crisis emerged when some of the BAP members and opposition lawmakers filed a no-confidence motion against Jam Kamal Khan and asked him to quit.
After finding himself in hot waters, the former chief minister had to resign only a day before the vote of no-confidence for face saving as he lacked majority.
