QUETTA: Leader of Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo on Friday took oath as the new Balochistan chief minister after he was elected to the office unopposed.

Balochistan Governor Zahoor Ahmed Agha administered the oath to the newly-elected chief minister at the Governor House, Quetta, after he received 39 votes in the Balochistan Assembly.

After Jam Kamal Khan Alyani had resigned as the Chief Minister last week following political turmoil in the province, the BAP leadership had nominated Bizenjo for the top slot.

Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly of Pakistan Qasim Suri, Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar and members of the national and provincial assemblies were also present in the ceremony.

Abdul Quddus Bizenjo elected new Balochistan CM

Bizenjo had gained the support of PTI Parliamentary Leader Sardar Yar Mohammad Rind, who announced that he was pulling out of the race and backing Bizenjo for the CM’s slot. PTI’s parliamentary party in the province had named Rind for the position of the chief minister.

Besides Rind, no other candidate in the provincial assembly had filed nomination papers to contest against Bizenjo. Bizenjo said he would announce the future policy of his government in Saturday’s assembly session.

Earlier, Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) leader Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo has been elected as the chief minister of Balochistan unopposed on Friday.

The Balochistan Assembly elected Bizenjo as the new leader of the house. It is the second time that he has been elected to the office of the province’s chief executive. In Jan 2018, he was elected as the CM for the first time after former Chief Minister Nawab Sanaullah Zehri resigned from the office.
