The 16th Chief Minister of Balochistan was elected president of the BAP after the formation of the party before the 2018 general election.
Last month, a no-confidence motion was filed by 16 opposition members against Khan in the Balochistan Assembly Secretariat.
The opposition members pointed four reasons for the no-confidence motion including ‘extreme disappointment’ and unrest in the province, while unemployment and performance of institutions had been badly affected because of the poor governance of the Balochistan Awami Party leader.
Opposition MPA’s mentioned that Jam Kamal had violated Articles 37 and 38 of the Constitution and passed budgets due to which poverty, deprivation, and unrest had increased in areas of Balochistan. It also added that the public was also feeling unprotected because of increasing incidents of robbery, kidnapping, murder, and terrorism.
