Hours before moving a no-confidence resolution against Chief Minister Jam Kamal, Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) Central Organiser Jan Jamali said the “game is over” and he “should leave now”.

Disgruntled members of the Balochistan Assembly, including lawmakers from the BAP, CM Kamal’s own party, and allied parties will move the no-trust motion in today’s session.

On Saturday, an assembly session for a no-confidence motion against Kamal had been summoned for today.

Jamali said: “I had told CM Kamal to resign a week ago.”

Meanwhile, responding to Jamali’s comments, Kamal said that “the anti-government alliance has been playing a game in Balochistan for quite a while”.

“The current situation is a game for Jamali, but not for me,” Kamal added.

He said that the anti-government alliances may continue their “games” but that he has “come to serve and will stay until the last day” of his tenure.

Kamal refused to step down as the chief minister of Balochistan after he had a meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan amid the deepening political crisis in the country’s largest province on October 14.

Just a day before Kamal met with the premier, Provincial Minister Zahoor Buledi had sought the prime minister’s intervention into the province’s political issues.

Buledi was appointed the acting president of BAP on October 11, but Kamal took back his decision to step down from the office a day later.

The same day, the MPAs irked with Kamal had submitted a no-confidence motion against him.

A similar move was made back on September 14, when 16 MPAs had moved a no-confidence motion against Kamal, but it was later denied by the Governor House Secretariat on technical grounds.

As a response, Kamal had said that he will not step down from his post on the demand of “12 people”.

“I will continue my struggle and will not resign on the call of 12 people,” he had said.
