The swearing-in ceremony will be attended by members of the Assembly, leaders of political parties and civil and military officials.

Earlier, Bizenjo gained the support of PTI Parliamentary Leader Sardar Yar Mohammad Rind, who announced that he was pulling out of the race and backing Bizenjo for the CM’s slot.

Besides Rind, no other candidate in the provincial assembly had filed nomination papers to contest against Bizenjo.

“We will go ahead in consultation with all and take benefit from the experiences of whoever remained the chief minister,” Bizenjo said. 

CM Bizenjo had said in a statement that he wanted to work with other leaders of the province. He said that he had even tried to contact former CM Jam Kamal. Bizenjo said he would announce the future policy of his government in tomorrow’s assembly session.

After Mir Jam Kamal Khan Alyani resigned as the CM, the BAP had nominated Bizenjo for the top slot. Meanwhile, the PTI’s parliamentary party in the province named Rind for the position.
