ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan banned postings and transfers of all government officials across the country on Tuesday, reported Express News.

The ECP notification said that a ban has also been imposed on the president, caretaker prime minister, chief ministers, governors and their advisors visiting their constituencies.

Legal action will be taken against all violators, the ECP stated.

In February, the ECP had placed a ban on recruitments in government functionaries and on announcement of development schemes to make arrangements for free and fair elections.

The commission had said that announcement of new jobs and development schemes with the elections around the corner were tantamount to pre-poll rigging.
