The Sindh High Court (SHC Decision regarding Pakistan Post Office) has ordered the Pakistan Post Office Employees Cooperative Society (PPEOCS) to hold elections within the next three months. The court also ordered the removal of the society’s current managing committee.
The SHC’s decision came in response to a petition filed by a group of PPEOCS members. The petition alleged that the society’s current managing committee was illegally occupying office and that it had failed to hold elections for several years.
SHC Decision regarding Pakistan Post Office
In its order, the SHC said that the PPEOCS was a public body and that it was subject to the law. The court said that the society’s current managing committee had failed to comply with the law and that it was therefore illegal.
The SHC’s decision is a major victory for the PPEOCS members, who have been campaigning for elections for several years. The decision is also a reminder that public bodies must comply with the law.
The SHC’s decision is also likely to have a wider impact on other cooperative societies in Pakistan. The decision is a reminder that cooperative societies must hold elections regularly and that their managing committees must be accountable to their members.
