ISLAMABAD: A political crisis is brewing in Balochistan once again as the ruling Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) and its allied parties have submitted a no-confidence motion against Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo today.

According to the PTI Balochistan chapter's President Yar Muhammad Rind, the party members united against their leader Bizenjo and decided to move a no-trust motion against him.

"We have the required numbers and the no-confidence motion will succeed against Bizenjo," claimed Rind, adding that the party will decide about the new chief minister after holding consultations with the allied parties.

The resolution was submitted to the Balochistan Assembly secretariat with the signatures of 14 MPAs. Out of 65 members, 33 votes will be required for the success of the no-trust motion. 

Meanwhile, Balochistan government spokesperson Farah Azeem Shah said that Bizenjo will remain the chief minister of Balochistan for the next five years as well. "The no-confidence motion against him will fail," she maintained.
