QUETTA—The no-confidence motion moved by the ruling party angered members against Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo failed to grab the support of required lawmakers.
According to details, the motion couldn’t even be tabled after it failed to get the support of the 20 percent of the house members – 13 members in the 65-member house.
The session started with Deputy Speaker Sardar Babar Khan Musakhail in the chair who asked former provincial minister Mir Zahoor Buledi to read out the motion.
After the motion was read, Musakhial asked the members in support of the motion to raise their hands. Only 11 members voted in favor of the motion.
The motion against Bizenjo was in the provincial assembly on Monday last week with the support of some lawmakers from his own party.
The motion was signed by 14 members, including Bizenjo’s predecessor Jam Kamal of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP).
The motion was presented by PTI parliamentary leader Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind.
It is to be noted here that Abdul Quddus Bizenjo was elected as the Chief Minister of Balochistan after the provincial assembly passed a motion of no-confidence against former chief minister Jam Kamal Khan a few months ago in October 2021.
