The Balochistan Assembly was dissolved on Saturday after Governor Malik Abdul Wali Kakar signed the summary moved by Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo for the dissolution of the provincial assembly.
Earlier, Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo affixed his signature to the summary outlining the dissolution of the provincial assembly.
The ongoing impasse between opposition factions has further complicated the situation. Both parties are unyielding in their pursuit of their respective preferred candidates to assume leadership of the interim government in Balochistan. Notable names in contention include Mir Hamal Kalmati from the Balochistan National Party (BNP), and Usman Badini and Shabbir Mengal from the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI).
Meanwhile, within the ruling Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), three contenders have emerged vying for the position of caretaker chief minister. Kehda Babar, Ejaz Sanjrani, and Naseer Bizenjo are all in contention to shoulder this critical responsibility.
Chief Minister Abdul Qudous Bizenjo is scheduled to engage in a final consultation with the leader of the opposition, with the aim of achieving a consensus on the appointment of the caretaker Chief Minister.
