ECP orders to reshuffle bureaucracy

ISLAMABAD:The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has directed the federal and provincial governments to transfer all those officials who are not considered independent.

A notification issued in Islamabad on Tuesday stated that if the governments consider that a federal or provincial secretary needs not be transferred or reshuffled‚ it may refrain from doing so under intimation to the Commission.

It also directed the caretaker setups to assess whether the Chairpersons or Chief Executives of all autonomous‚ semi-autonomous and state owned bodies‚ IG Police‚ CCPOs‚ City Commissioners‚ DCOs‚ DPOs‚ SHOs‚ patwaris and EDOs are independent individuals and transfer those who do not meet this criteria.
