Just weeks ahead of the July 25 general elections, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has authorised a massive administrative reshuffle in Punjab, Sindh and Balochistan.

The commission has described the move as part of an effort to ensure transparent elections next month.

The changes proposed by the caretaker setup in the centre and provinces and okayed by the ECP are expansive: the transfers of 77 senior police officials have been approved in Punjab, of 33 deputy commissioners in Sindh and 64 assistant commissioners in Balochistan.

Curiously, while the details of the shakeup in the three provinces were released almost in succession, those relating to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have not been unveiled so far.
