The caretaker federal government of Pakistan has made a significant reorganization in the top bureaucracy by transferring over two dozen officials serving in grade 21-22. This move was apparently made on the instructions of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). The provincial interim governments are also expected to follow these instructions, which may result in large-scale postings and transfers in all provinces over the next two days.
The ECP had issued a notification on August 15, stating that all heads of institutions appointed on a political basis should have their services terminated and their cases sent to the Commission for approval. Some of the key officials who were transferred include the chief secretaries of Sindh and Balochistan, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, as well as the chief commissioner of Islamabad and the cabinet division secretary.
For example, Dr. Mohammad Fakhre Alam Irfan has been made the Sindh chief secretary, replacing Dr. Muhammad Sohail Rajput. Balochistan Chief Secretary Abdul Aziz Uqaili has also been transferred. Other officials have been reassigned to different positions within the government. These transfers have been made to comply with the ECP’s directives.
Overall, this reorganization is a significant change in the top bureaucracy of Pakistan and is likely to have a wide-ranging impact on the functioning of the government.
