PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa education department has prohibited teachers from participating in elections and exams.
According to details, the KP education department has issued a notification regarding teachers who are engaged in census work.

The letter also stated that teacher appointments and postings would be halted until the census was completed.
In addition, the education department has sent letters to all boards, directors, and other relevant officials.
Earlier, Pakistan’s first-ever digital population and housing census was launched by Chief Census Commissioner Dr. Naeem uz Zafar.
