Balochistan [Pakistan] : Balochistan Chief Minister Sarfraz Bugti said the provincial cabinet will be finalised within the next two weeks, Dawn reported.

Bugti informed that a committee comprising representatives of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and other parties was holding consultations for the formation of the provincial cabinet.

Speaking to media persons, Bugti said, "Asif Ali Zardari won with a significant majority in the Balochistan Assembly, with 47 votes, while Mahmood Khan Achakzai did not receive even a single vote."

He called Zardari's victory a result of his vision, bringing the 18th Amendment, introducing Aghaz-i-Haqooq Balochistan and his struggle for the development of the province, Dawn reported.

He added that Zardari would continue to struggle for Baloch people's rights as he did before.

The chief minister said the President-elect will soon visit Balochistan and all the issues would be discussed with him.

"We will become a strong unit to represent the voice of Balochistan's people and resolve all issues with sincerity," Bugti added.

He said a series of dialogues with allies and non-allies on issues related to Balochistan had been going on for the past two weeks, proving, thereby, that the PPP can take everyone along.

Mir Sarfraz Bugti from the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) was sworn in as the Balochistan CM on March 3.
PPP's joint candidate with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Sarfraz Bugti, secured 41 votes during the Balochistan Assembly session, with the JUI-F and National Party abstaining from the CM election, according to ARY News.
