Balochistan Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo has called a parliamentary party meeting today (Sunday) at the CM secretariat to discuss the current political situation in the province.
The chief minister has offered the annoyed party members to share their reservations and they would work as a team to resolve all issues, said an official source here Saturday.
The parliamentary party meeting is the only forum where a solution could be found for all political issues of the ruling party through mutual consultation and talks.
The indignant group of the party and allies had filed a no-trust motion in the Balochistan Assembly against the leader of the house, which deepened the political crisis in the province.
Under the signatures of 14 MPAs — including PTI Balochistan president Yar Muhammad Rind and ANP parliamentary leader Asghar Khan Achakzai — have filed the no-trust motion against the CM to the acting governor Mir Jan Muhammad Jamali.
The no-confidence motion is signed by his party’s like-minded group members, hoping that they will get support from the other parties. Out of 65 members, the votes of 33 members will be required for the no-confidence motion to make it successful, while the party needs 17 votes to file the motion against the CM.
Meanwhile, Federal Minister for Housing and Works and JUI Balochistan’s Ameer Maulana Abdul Wasey said that the party’s decision regarding the no-confidence move against Bizenjo will be announced soon.
Talking to the media here at the JUI office, Maulana Wasey said that filing the no-confidence motion against Bizenjo was Balochistan Awami Party’s own decision; however, JUI was also consulting with its leadership over this matter. “We have not decided our future course of action with regards to the party’s stance in the no-confidence motion,” he clarified.
However, Maulana Wasey noted that it would be announced soon after the second round of consultation of the JUI provincial cabinet was completed.
To a question, he said that the offer to JUI for a CM ship slot was not surprising. “JUI’s parliamentarians are more capable than previous and incumbent CMs to run the affairs of the province effectively, he asserted.
Earlier, he chaired a meeting attended by the provincial cabinet of the JUI and parliamentary group to consult on the political situation in the wake of the no-confidence motion against the Balochistan chief minister. app
