Staff Report

QUETTA: Balochistan coalition partners have decided to nominate Abdul Quddus Bizenjo for the chief minister’s office and Mir Jan Jamali as Speaker of the Provincial Assembly.
Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani, Federal Minister for Defense Pervaiz Khattak and Deputy Speaker National Assembly Qasim Suri addressed a press conference here along with the leaders of the allied parties.
Chairman Senate addressing the press conference said that the name of Abdul Quddus Bizenjo has been finalized for the leader of the house, while the alliance has also agreed over Mir Jan Jamali as the new Speaker of Balochistan Assembly.
“A political crisis that was ongoing for last one month has come to an end today, all disagreements have been resolved,” Sanjrani further said. He also thanked former chief minister Jam Kamal for his role in sorting out differences.
Federal Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak said that the PTI will remain an ally of the BAP in the government and it backs the decision taken by the Balochistan Awami Party.
Abdul Quddus Bizenjo also lauded Jam Kamal’s role in saving the party and said he expects that all sides will work jointly for the development of Balochistan.
The political crisis in the province moved towards resolution after resignation of Jam Kamal and efforts in the ruling coalition to keep the alliance intact by keeping the pro-Jam Kamal members in the fold.
Talking on the occasion, PTI Parliamentary Leader Sardar Yar Mohammad Rind said that the PTI MPs had expressed in the meeting that they were being completely ignored and it was decided by the members that we will bring our candidates for Chief Minister and Speaker. Prime Minister Imran Khan has sent Pervez Khattak to Balochistan.
He said that there were expectations from Balochistan Awami Party which were not fulfilled. Let us know that you are our ally. Join us in BAP and PTI provinces and center government. He said that there was a problem within the Balochistan Awami Party but he did not take any step which would destabilize the government.
Sardar Rind said that we are once again with this hope and are supporting Balochistan Awami Party that it will not do to us what has been done to us in the last three years. He said that Balochistan is stalled due to his father’s own fight.
Speaking on the occasion, acting president of Balochistan Awami Party Mir Zahoor Buledi said that Sardar Yar Mohammad Rind has always shown greatness. PTI will support us unconditionally in the election of Chief Minister and Speaker.
