The director general of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Ehtesab Commission (KPEC) complained on Monday that legal obstacles were obstructing him from increasing the manpower of the commission.

Talking to reporters during an Iftar dinner DG (KPEC) Brigadier (retd) Sajjad said that in March 2017 service rules for the commission were issued to increase the strength of the commission. However, they have been facing some legal obstacles in this regard.
