Zardari issues ordinance to amend Wafaqi Mohtasib Act 1983

08 December, 2012

ISLAMABAD: President Asif Zardari on Friday issued an ordinance to further amend the Establishment of the Office of Wafaqi Mohtasib (Ombudsman) Order 1983.

Through the Ordinance, amendment has been made in Article 24 of the Act. It provides that the wafaqi mohtasib may by order in writing and for such period and subject to conditions as he may deem fit, delegate his powers to any officer holding post in BS-21 or above in the Wafaqi Mohtasib's Secretariat.

It is worth mentioning that the post of wafaqi mohtasib (ombudsman) is lying vacant for the last about two years and as a result decisions on thousands of applicants are pending.
