Responsibilities of chief election commissioner of Pakistan have direct impact on democratic process.

Key Role of Pakistan CEC For Advanced Performance

Chief election commissioner is one of key constitutional positions in Pakistan. President of Pakistan appoints chief election commissioner to conduct free, fair and transparent elections. Several political parties and NGOs have been objecting appointment of former CEC, justice Fakharuddin G. Ibrahim for his 80+ years of age. No doubt justice Fakharuddin enjoys good reputation in Pakistan particularly in Karachi but he could not be able to hold free and fair general elections in May 2013. Renewal of electoral rolls annually is an important task of chief election commissioner besides scrutinizing assets and academic credentials of candidates and elected representatives. The position of chief election commissioner is still vacant whereas local government elections are at hand. Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk is serving as acting chief election commissioner. There has been demand for a non- judicial election commissioner. Can a Pakistani professional woman hold august position of chief election commissioner? Answer is yes.

Team of President of Pakistan is looking for a competent and honest person. Proposed few names are Dr. Farooq Hasan, Bilal Mehbub, Adil Gillani and Musharraf Hai. Let us not forget about killing of candidates and voters during election campaigns. Be the next CEC a female or male, a non-judicial or judicial person, the incumbent must perform key responsibilities systematically and timely. Voters and political parties are anxiously waiting for result- oriented electoral development instead of cosmetic make-up.
