The post of Special Secretary has become vacant in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) after it has been decided not to extend the service of incumbent Special Secretary Zafar Iqbal Malik, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

Zafar Iqbal was Returning Officer during the recently held Senate elections 2021. 

The ECP created the Special Secretary post for the first time other than the ECP Secretary.

The PTI had also accused the outgoing ECP Special Secretary Zafar Iqbal of being bias.

The Special Secretary might be appointed from among ECP officers or would be brought in on deputation. 

Sources claimed that the ECP has started considering filling the appointment as it is facing a shortage of 21-grade officers in the Commission.
