ECP denies news about retired officers’ appointments as ROs / DROs

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday dismissed news reports about the appointment of retired officers as district returning officers/returning officers as baseless, stating that no such decision had been made.

An ECP spokesperson, in a statement, highlighted the Commission’s ongoing communication with provincial and district election commissioners for furnishing updated lists of officers for the appointment as DROs / ROs.

“It is a continuous procedure wherein the Election Commission regards the appointment of DROs / ROs as highly significant to guarantee a fair, transparent, and impartial general election,” he added.
