BAHAWALPUR: Punjab Governor Muhammad Baleeghur Rehman said that the Election Commission of Pakistan was an independent and powerful institution.
Talking to media at Government Technical Training Institute Bahawalpur on Monday evening, he said that elsewhere in the world the democratic system had been strengthened by their election commission and now in Pakistan an independent and powerful election commission existed.
Referring to the objections being raised by political parties concerning the misuse of its powers by the caretaker government in Punjab, the governor said that without the approval of the ECP even the government couldn't post and transfer any official on its own.
Responding to a query on law and order, he maintained that the security of the country was well maintained in 2018, however, the security situation deteriorated in later years which was unfortunate. He maintained that the law enforcement agencies were fully alert and were sacrificeing for the cause and hopefully things would get better before the upcoming elections.
Earlier, he inaugurated a modern IT lab at Government Technical Training Institute and emphasised maximum use of information technology to keep pace with the progress made by others nations.
