Muhammad Jalal Sikandar Sultan has sworn in as the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC). Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmad administered the oath at a ceremony at the Supreme Court in Islamabad on Monday (Jan 27).
He was chosen to head the Election Commission by a parliamentary committee comprising government and opposition members following the retirement of Sardar Raza Khan from the seat last month.
Earlier, the President also confirmed the appointment of Nasir Durrani and Shah Mohammad Jatoi as members of the Election Commission of Pakistan from Sindh and Balochistan respectively. The appointments come in light of the November 2, 2019, order issued by the Islamabad High Court.
