Govt, Opp put forward eight names for caretaker Balochistan CM


The government and the opposition have proposed names for the caretaker chief minister of Balochistan.

The government proposed the names of former chief justice of Balochistan high court Ammanullah Yasinzai, Justice (r) Ahmed Khan Lashari and Jam Kamal.

Opposition leader Nawabzada Tariq Magsi suggested the names of Saleh Mohammad Bhootani, Hussain Bakhsh Bangalzai, and Nawab Ghaus Bakhsh Barozai.

Meanwhile, the National Party has suggested the names of former Balochistan Assembly speaker Aslam Bhootani and Ali Ahmed Kurd.

The government and opposition will now deliberate on the names before selecting one as the caretaker chief minister of Balochistan.

This political development came just days after governor Magsi dissolved the provincial assembly.

Earlier, provincial assemblies had also been dissolved in Khyber Pakhtunkhawa (KP) and Sindh.
