Parliamentary Secretary for Information and Social Welfare Bushra Rind was present at the presser.

Mr Buledi said the cabinet decided to hold local government elections in the province soon. However, it noted that since 70 per cent of Balochistan had no power supply, it would not be possible to use electronic voting machines for the election.

While discussing the implementation of the development package, the cabinet decided to release Rs182bn to the FWO for the execution of various projects, which included construction of various roads and dams in Awaran and Panjgur districts.

He said five main roads would be built by the FWO in the province.

The cabinet approved an amendment to the Balochistan Public Procurement Act 2009 under which an electronic system would be utilised for the bidding process, he added.

The cabinet approved Balochistan Letter of Administration and Succession Bill 2021, allowing Nadra to issue a succession certificate in case of death of any person, he said.
