Speaker of the Balochistan Assembly Abdul Qudoos Bezinjo resigned from his post on Monday as the Balochistan Awami Party or BAP nominated him as the next chief minister of the province. This was stated by the acting president of BAP Zahoor Buledi and Sardar Abdur Rehman Khetran at a joint media conference in Quetta. Meanwhile, the no-confidence motion was withdrawn from the assembly after Jam Kamal’s resignation. Nawab Sanaullah Zehri of the PPP said: “We will not dwell upon the past.” Sardar Saleh Bhootani said that they would take allies into confidence. Bezinjo submitted his request to the governor of Balochistan for approval. The move comes a day after Jam Kamal Alyani, former chief minister of the province, stepped down a day before the provincial assembly was to vote on the no-confidence motion tabled against him. Consequently, the provincial assembly stands dissolved. Bezinjo is said to be a contender for the post of chief minister. In a tweet on Monday, Jam Kamal said that several development projects had been completed during his tenure and several others partially completed projects had been included in the budget. “Personal whims will not be allowed to derail these projects,” Jam Kamal said in the tweet. In these 3 years alot development and reforms have been done. Many projects are underway and many are put in current budget which shall be completed by covering to the future needs of this projects.Inshallah non of these shall be derailed for personal motives and agendas.— Jam Kamal Khan (@jam_kamal) October 25, 2021 Jam Kamal Alyani tweeted Sunday evening that he would “rather leave respectfully and not be part of [his opponent's] monetary agenda and bad governance formulation.” “Besides many deliberate political hindrances, I have given my utmost time and energy for the overall governance and development of Balochistan,” he said. Political crisis in Balochistan Jam Kamal Alyani faced a rebellion from disgruntled members of his Balochistan Awami Party (BAP). The no-confidence motion against him tabled on October 20 was supported by at least 16 signatures. However, Alyani’s opponents claimed that between 33 and 28 members supported the motion. Chances for Alyani’s survival seemed promising when at least four MPAs did not show up for the Balochistan Assembly meeting on the day the no-confidence motion was tabled last week. Their fellows staged a sit-in at the gate, claiming that the MPAs had gone ‘missing.’ The MPAs later surfaced in Islamabad and returned to Quetta in a Balochistan government’s plane. They met with Balochistan Assembly Speaker Abdul Quddus Bezinjo and assured him of their support for the no-confidence motion. Bezinjo is said to have played a major role in the move against Alyani. Alyani’s resignation, however, does not bring to an end the months of political wrangling in Balochistan. A new battle for the new chief minister is about to start.
