Petitioning Prime Minister of Pakistan

Depoliticization of Bureaucracy


Extraneous influences, like political persuasions, threats, inducements and temptations must be eliminated to ensure apolitical and neutral civil services and reclaim their dignity and respectability. As primary source of implementing laws and policies, officers need to work in an environment which is free of political biases and focused at serving the public. Civil servants since shorn of any protection are humiliated and exploited by all influential perons who consider themsleves above the law. In thiese circumstances it is imperative that the civil services should present their views on fundamental rights and protection of an established institution.We are signing a petition for the government to take appropriate decisions in this regard..

Depoliticization of Bureaucracy

Extraneous influences, political persuasions, threats, inducements and temptations must be eliminated to ensure apolitical and neutral civil services and reclaim the dignity and respectability inherent within the institution. As a primary body to implement policies and uphold the rule of law, officers need to work in an environment which is free of political biases and focused at public service. Civil servants since shorn of any protection are humiliated and exploited by all influential persons who consider themsleves above the law. In these circumstances it is imperative that the civil services should function within the constitutional framework and basic rules and policies must be followed for efficient and transparent management of officers. These include i) Security of tenure, ii) Transparent and merit based promotions iii) apolitical placements according to suitability and experience and iv) encadrement of all federal and provincal government posts.

We the civil servants of Pakistan are signing a petition for the government to take appropriate decisions in this regard..
