QUETTA: The Balochistan High Court (BHC) declared the appointment of 32 coordinators and two spokespersons to Chief Minister Balochistan as illegal and null and void. A division bench of the BHC comprising Chief Justice, Mr. Justice, Naeem Akhtar Afghan, and Mr. Justice Amir Rana passed this order on a constitutional petition.
Senior lawyer, Sadiq Khilji Advocate, and others had challenged the appointment of coordinators and two spokespersons to the CM Balochistan in the high court. The spokespersons include Farah Azeem Shah and Babar Yousafzai.
The court directs all coordinators to return official belongings
The court directed the sacked coordinators and spokespersons to submit all officials belonging to the Services and General Administration Department (S&GAD). All 32 coordinators and spokespersons should return all official belongings to the government, the court ordered.
In his petition, Mr. Khilji argued that the province was facing a serious financial crisis. Despite a serious financial crisis, Chief Minister Balochistan had appointed 32 coordinators and two spokespersons.
