ISLAMABAD: The National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) on Tuesday shared 12 threat alerts pertaining to general elections 2018 with relevant authorities from all the provinces.

The agenda of the meeting revolved around assessing threats against the backdrop of upcoming general elections which have been scheduled to take place on July 25.

The meeting was attended by officials from home departments of all the four provinces and was also attended by the Interior Minister Muhammad Azam Khan.

In a top top-level reshuffle in the federal bureaucracy earlier last week, the federal caretaker government swapped the portfolios of the NACTA chief.

Less than two months after Dr Suleman Khan, a BS-22 officer, was appointed DG of the Intelligence Bureau, the caretaker government swapped his portfolio with the National Coordinator of the National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA), Ihsan Ghani, another BS-22 officer. Both Khan and Ghani belong to Police Service of Pakistan.
