Reform the Civil Service
Imran Khan and his team from PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) promised us:
We will transform the civil service into a merit-based, a depoliticised cadre of professionals.
Civil service in Pakistan has seen 38 major reforms in the last 70 years. These reforms have not been able to depoliticise the service or attracted bright young talent on merit, and technical expertise.
The implementation of civil service reforms is our priority and we will:
Assign the right officer to the right job without any political consideration, tenure protection of officers, internal accountability, along with a performance audit and a review of the compensation package.
Allow lateral entry into the service of competent professionals.
Ensure compulsory retirement after 2 supersessions through a transparent mechanism.
