Bizenjo elected as new chief minister of Balochistan

Balochistan Assembly Saturday has elected Abdul Quddus Bizenjo as the new leader of the House in Quetta today (Saturday) days after Sanaullah Zehri was forced to step down in a no-confidence motion against him. The political crisis has been intensified by speculation, widely circulated in media, that elements of Pakistan's powerful military were behind efforts to destabilise the region and possibly dissolve the assembly ahead of the senate polls due around March, and the general elections in mid-2018.

Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid candidate Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo and Pashtunkhuwa Milli Awami Party member Agha Liaquat vied for the top office of the province. This signifies that PML-N MPs also voted for the new CM.

Another PkMap candidate Abdul Rahim Ziyaratwal, who had filed his nominations, had withdrawn from the race at the last moment.

Former deputy speaker of Balochistan Assembly bagged 41 votes out of 54 votes cast to become third chief minister in four years.

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.

Elected to the Balochistan Assembly for the first time in 2002 from PB-41 Awaran, Bizenjo was sworn in as provincial minister for livestock and dairy development in Jam Yousuf's cabinet. 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.

Only 1.18 percent were polled in his constituency.

National Party had not nominated any candidate neither announced support for any.

Balochistan National Party-Mengal chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal said they would continue to play their role for democratic forces.

The political crisis began with Bizenjo submitting a no-confidence motion against the chief minister on January 2.

Bizenjo, who had moved the motion of no-confidence against former CM Sanaullah Zehri, managed to bag 41 votes in 65-member house.

"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.
