40 MPAs supporting no-confidence motion against Zehri: PML-Q’s Bizenjo

Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) representative and provincial lawmaker Abdul Quddus Bizenjo has claimed that as many as 40 legislators will vote for the no-confidence motion against Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri.
Bizenjo said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Changez Marri has also rendered his support for the no-confidence motion.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Balochistan chief minister said that those claiming to have the support of 40 MPAs could not gather more than 20 legislators at their recently held dinner meeting.
Zehri has reportedly said that he will fight against the no-confidence motion and will prove his support in the house.
The no-confidence motion will likely be presented on Tuesday (tomorrow).
Separately, Zehri contacted PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif on Sunday and conveyed to him that the issue of the no-confidence motion against him needs to be resolved.
According to sources, Zehri told Nawaz that a no-confidence motion against him could have an impact on the results of the upcoming general elections.
The government has increased efforts to resolve a brewing crisis in the province after provincial lawmakers submitted a no-confidence motion against Zehri last week, followed be resignations of several provincial cabinet members.
