Disgruntled lawmakers file no-confidence motion against Balochistan CM

  • Political crisis in the province has intensified in recent days as CM is adamant that he will not step down
Published October 11, 2021

Disgruntled Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) lawmakers filed on Monday a no-confidence motion against Chief Minister Jam Kamal Alyani, deepening the political crisis in the province.

The disgruntled lawmakers, in the motion, have argued that in Alyani's term as the chief minister, there has been unemployment and unrest in the province.

Balochistan crisis deepens as Jam refuses to quit

Lawmakers including Saeed Hashmi, Jan Jamali, Mir Zahoor Ahmed Buledi, Asad Baloch, Naseebullah Marri and Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran were present in the assembly when the application was submitted.

The no-confidence motion will be sent by the Balochistan Assembly Secretariat to the provincial governor. If the governor approves it, a session of the assembly will be convened in 7-10 days to discuss the motion.

Mir Zahoor Ahmed Buledi, one of the disgruntled lawmakers, told reporters on Monday that his group had expressed lack of confidence in Chief Minister Alyani's leadership with a "majority."

Buledi asked Alyani once again to resign before the motion was taken up.

Balochistan National Party-Awami's (BNP-A) Asad Baloch said it was a principle that "one person is sacrificed for the larger interest of the majority."

"We are not a disgruntled group, but a united group," he said, adding that the existing political crisis had given rise to many issues, and asked Alyani to "give up".

The political crisis in Balochistan has intensified as the CM is adamant not to step down.

Spokesperson of the Balochistan government Liaquat Shahwani rejected the demand of the chief minister's resignation from the estranged lawmakers of Balochistan Awami Party as well as the opposition parties.

Chief Minister Jam Kamal had earlier reiterated that he will not step down on the demand of 12 people. "The allies and most of the BAP members are supporting me," he said.

Disgruntled BAP lawmakers to file no-confidence motion against Balochistan CM

Last week, Chief Minister Balochistan met with disgruntled lawmakers in a bid to foil the no-confidence motion against him.

The chief minister visited the residences of Abdul Rehman Khetran and Bushra Rind and assured them that their reservations will be addressed.

Earlier on Monday, Alyani held a meeting with PTI parliamentary leader in the Balochistan Assembly Sardar Yar Mohammad Rind during which the existing political situation was discussed.

However, the meeting ended without any resolution.
