Balochistan’s political chessboard has been rearrangedBalochistan’s political chessboard has been rearranged in the wake of Abdul Quddus Bizenjo’s election on Saturday as the new chief minister of the province. Zehri’s forfeiture of the post meant that the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) and its nominated candidate (Bizenjo) could install the next government. On Saturday, Bizenjo, a former deputy speaker of the Balochistan Assembly, successfully edged out Agha Syed Liaquat Ali of the Pakhtoonkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) in the election and secured his place as the third chief minister of the province in a little over four years. Although Bizenjo’s share of the vote in the 2013 polls was both small and questionable, he has won plaudits as an assembly member.
