ISLAMABAD - The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday transferred and posted dozens of officers in a major reshuffle ahead of the 2018 general elections.

A total of 86 officers, including district and regional election commissioners and deputy directors in grades 17 and 18, were transferred via a notification issued today.

Of the transferred officers, nine have been transferred from the ECP Secretariat in Islamabad; 26, including the Lahore regional election commissioner, from Punjab; 13 from Sindh; 14 from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa; and 23 from Balochistan.

Islamabad District Election Commissioner Muhammad Nadeem Zubair has been posted as the regional election commissioner Multan, while Farid Afridi will serve as the regional election commissioner in Lahore.

As the ECP prepares for upcoming elections, it has repeatedly talked about hurdles in the conduct of elections due to a delay in the delimitation of constituencies.
