Quetta: Dr. Malik led coalition government of Balochistan is facing the threat of no confidence motion in Balochistan assembly.
Molana Abdul Wasay, opposition leader in Balochistan assembly, has demanded that the session of Balochistan Assembly should be convened soon where the opposition will table a no-confidence motion.
“Dr. Malik has lost the support of PML-N and PML-Q and therefore it doesn’t have the required support to remain in the government,” said Mr. Wasay.
Coalition government in Balochistan comprises of National Party (NP), Pashtunkhaw Milli Awami Party (PKAMP), PML-N and PML-Q. Since the formation of government in last June, many issues have surfaced which suggest that there is no working relationship among coalition partners.
PML-N and PML-Q ministers in government have complained since day one that NP and PKMAP are interfering in their domain. As a matter of fact, PML-N and PML-Q are in boycott of Balochistan assembly and Balochistan cabinet.
This fact was also confirmed by spokesman of Balochistan government, Jan Buledi, on Wednesday.
“Only one minister from PML-N and PML-Q is active in the Balochistan government. We will try to convince others as well to be active,” said Mr. Buledi while endorsing the fact that serious rifts exists between coalition members in Balochistan government.
“Dr. Malik led government will remain intact as long as it has the support of Nawaz Sharif. Leadership of provincial chapter of PML-N was against giving the portfolio of Chief Minster to NP,” said an analyst while talking to The Balochistan point.
Given the political crisis at center and the support provided to Nawaz Sharif by Mahmood Achakzai and Hasil Bizenjo, it’s least likely that Nawaz Sharif will withdraw its support for Dr. Malik government.
