IPA Pakistan - New National Board

10 May 2021


The International Police Association‘s Pakistan Section underwent its electoral cycle, from February through March 2021, in two phases that elected the office bearers of regional and national executive committees respectively. The entire process was supervised by an independent election commission, whose mandate is prescribed in Article VIII of the constitution of IPA Pakistan. 

The formal announcement of the elections was followed by filing nominations, notification of successful nominees, appeals against rejection, as well as voting and declaration of results. In the wake of COVID-19, the election commission invoked a special provision, stipulated in rule 21, for approval of electronic voting. While upholding the principle of single vote, only persons with valid membership had the right to vote.

In the first phase, voting in favor of four regional executive committees was held on 14 February 2021, while the results were notified on 15 February 2021.

In the second phase, voting for the election of the National Executive Committee commenced on 14 March 2021, and concluded with the declaration of the successful candidates on 16 March 2021.

I feel honored to be re-elected as the President ot the IPA Pakistan Section and, therefore, feel obliged to extend gratitude to all those members who placed their confidence in me. I have the utmost respect for all those who chose otherwise and emboldened the spirit of this election.

My vision is to expand this network through strengthening the rapport amongst fellow members and promoting positive interaction. In addition, I also desire for us to engage effectively with our foreign counterparts on grounds of common interests, and benefit from the knowledge and experience of one another.

I hope that the new team shall work sincerely towards the fulfillment of our objectives, as well as upholding the values of this association.

Dr. Muhammad Shoaib Suddle, President IPA Pakistan
