EC bans appointments, transfers in Sindh.

ISLAMABAD -- The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Friday imposed ban on appointments and transfers of government officials in Sindh. According to a notification - the commission made the decision after receiving complaints that government officials are being transferred on political grounds.

It said prior permission of the commission must be obtained before any appointment or transfer of government servants. The Commission has informed the Sindh caretaker government accordingly. The notification says: "A number of complaints are being received in the Commission that in the province of Sindh, postings/transfers of the officers are being made on political pressure which is undesirable because of its adverse effect on fairness and impartiality of the electoral process."

"The Election Commission has re-considered the matter and has directed that there will be complete ban on transfer/posting of officers/officials of the Federal/Provincial/ Local governments posted in the province of Sindh. The Commission has further directed that in case of any exigency of service, prior approval of the Commission shall be obtained before any posting/transfer of any officer/official mentioned above is made.
