Baloch Republican Party

The Baloch Republican Party is led by Brahumdagh Bugti, leader of the Bugti tribe, who took the organisation's reins after the 2006 killing of his grandfather Akbar Bugti by the Pakistani army. Like the Baloch Liberation Army, it advocates the independence of a "Greater Balochistan." The party opposes all political dialogue with Pakistan's federal authorities, accusing Islamabad of perpetrating a genocide against the Baloch people and calling upon the international community to intervene on Balochistan's behalf.
