QUETTA

Pakistan People’s Party Balochistan chapter chief Mir Sadiq Umrani held on Wednesday that the vote of confidence in Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani by members of the Balochistan Assembly had no constitutional status.

The party, Umrani told journalists, did not pose confidence in the leadership of the chief minister, and those voted for him had not taken permission from the party leadership either.

Reiterating that the provincial government had lost its constitutional status in the light of the interim order of the Supreme Court, the PPP leader affirmed that those participated in the unconstitutional session of the assembly would be held accountable before the masses.

Umrani, however, made clear that the PPP would not be a party in the move of non-confidence against the speaker, contending that Aslam Bhootani did adopt the constitutional way and sought the advice from the governor over the calling of the session.

“We don’t want the politics of confrontation,” asserted the PPP leader while concluding, “We have fought a prolonged battle for the constitutional supremacy.”
