With a profound understanding of governance issues, policies, and procedures within the Government of Pakistan, Omar Hamid brings senior-level expertise in policy formulation, strategy development, and program design. His extensive experience spans both international and domestic spheres, particularly in the political economies of developing countries. Hamid is recognized for his ability to build successful interactive relationships between the government and development partners.

In a related development, the Election Commission of Pakistan rebuffed allegations from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) regarding a lack of a level playing field for the upcoming general election in 2024. Sources disclosed that over 76 percent of PTI’s nomination papers have been approved by the ECP. The commission submitted a detailed report addressing the level playing field concerns to the Supreme Court registrar.

As the resignation of Omar Hamid awaits formal acceptance, the ECP navigates these changes while addressing political concerns, reinforcing its commitment to fair and transparent electoral processes in Pakistan.
