Qudoos Bizenjo of PML-Q elected as new Balochistan Chief Minister


Zardari and PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had claimed after ex-CM Sanaullah Zehri's resignation that the new leader of the House would be a PPP member.

Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo was elected as next Chief Minister of Balochistan on Saturday after Sanaullah Zehri stepped down ahead of a no-confidence motion against him.

"I will reach out to all political parties, including PkMAP and NP for parliamentary consultation and we will try to resolve issues in the province by keeping everyone together", said the newly-elected chief minister.

Bizenjo belongs to Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q), a party that has just five members in a house of 65. Except Zehri, all the remaining legislators also voted for Bizenjo.

A total 54 votes were polled by the lawmakers and Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party's (PkMAP) Agha Syed Liaquat Ali bagged 13 votes.
