QUETTA: The process for submitting nomination papers for the new chief minister of Balochistan is under way.
The nomination papers can be taken from the secretary of the Balochistan Assembly and have to be submitted before 3pm today.
The election for the new provincial chief executive will be held in the assembly session on Saturday (tomorrow).
The election follows the resignation of chief minister Sanaullah Zehri, who quit on January 9 before a no-confidence motion against him could be taken up in the assembly.
On Thursday, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) and the disgruntled members of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) nominated PML-Q’s Abdul Quddus Bizenjo as the candidate for the new chief minister.
