Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo emerged as a strong contender for the post of the new chief minister of Balochistan after a large number of opposition parties announced their support.

These parties included the Jamiat Ulemae Islam-Fazl or JUI-F, Balochistan National Party-Mengal or BNP-M, BNP-Awam, Awami National Party or ANP, Jamhoori Watan Party or JWP and Pakistan National Party-Awami or PNP-A.

Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind of PTI had already withdrawn his name from the race.

A delegation of the Balochistan Awami Party or BAP met with leaders of various political parties and sought their support in the formation of the new government.

The new government will be a “fine bouquet”, Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo told reporter earlier on Wednesday.

“We will take along not just our allies but also members of the opposition in the provincial assembly,” Bizenjo said.

Expressing the hope that the new government will be able to solve chronic problems faced by the province,  members of the opposition said that the new government should use its powers for the welfare of the people.

According to acting president of BAP Zahoor Buledi, the new government would work hard for solving pressing people’s problems. “We will need the support of all political parties at every step. We will take everyone on board and form a good government,” Buledi said.

PTI’s central leadership persuaded Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind on Wednesday to give up his bid for the post of the province’s chief minister in support of Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo, fortifying his position in the race.

Announcing this decision at a press conference in Quetta, Rind sharply criticized the Balochistan Awami Party or BAP, saying that its leaders routinely decided among themselves on crucial issues and “tell us to work with them in the interest of the alliance”.

He was accompanied by Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjarani, Defence Minister Pervez Khattak and key leaders of the BAP on this occasion.

“We have been ignored for the past three years and this is why my colleagues nominated me to the post but now that Pervez Khattak has visited my residence, I will let him decide. I will accept whatever decision he makes,” Sar Yar Muhammad Rind said.

Expressing the hope that past mistakes will not be repeated, Defence Minister Pervez Khattak said: “The previous government paid for its unilateral decisions. We hope the new government will give us our due share. We are supporting Balochistan Awami Party for the sake of progress and prosperity in Balochistan.”

Acting president of the BAP Zahoor Buledi and former speaker of the provincial assembly Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo agreed that in the past, Yar Muhammad Rind was not accorded due respect.

They said that they would benefit from the experience of such a veteran politician and form a better government than before.
