November 18, 2016

LONDON: The Amnesty International (AI) says politically motivated expulsion of Turkish school in Pakistan teachers will exacerbate education woes. 

 

In response to Pakistan’s decision to expel more than 100 Turkish school teachers, Amnesty International’s South Asia Director Champa Patel said: “With 24 million Pakistani children out of school, Pakistan’s decision to expel teachers from the Pak-Turk International Schools and Colleges will only hurt Pakistan’s children.

“What the country needs is more classrooms and more teachers, not a politically-motivated decision to purge educators at the behest of the Turkish government,” Commission, though already these are under its ownership but kept at the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra), it was learnt.

The status of the programme relating to the district civic and voter education committees will also be looked into besides the massive task of printing of classified material, including alloted papers. A draft proposal on the establishment of the Election Commission’s own printing house will be discussed too. Likewise, the meeting will review the progress on the purchase of transparent ballot boxes, screened off compartments and plastic seals and other stationery items.
